I've had my Gala tent for two years now, I use it as a shelter at motorsport events throughout the country and on average once the tent is up it will be up for 3 days. So far it has endured Hail, snow, sleet and heavy rain and we have no leaks or problems with the covers. Assembly is quick with two people and once set up we never have to worry about it. It's been sturdy and strong even when the wind gets up. For the price you really cannot beat the gala tent - I've not found anything of... (read more)

Why choose Gala tent? Well why Not?. If It’s Quality at an Affordable price you are after, then you would be a fool not to choose a Gala Tent. Granted there are cheaper and more ‘Affordable’ tents out there, but do you get the quality?, NO. Do you get Durability? NO. Do you get a tent that will stand the test of Time? NO. All this I can say confidently, up until we discovered Gala Tent we must have spent a small fortune on Gazebos, all of which ended up in the Bin, and why was this you... (read more)

I bought a 6m x 4m gala tent and I had lots of problems. The poles don't fit in the ground bars properly and the holes don't line up so you can put the bolts in. The wing nuts are such poor quality you need a spanner to turn them at all and the little nuts welded on the poles are splitting off after 1 use for 3 days. The seams will leak as you can see the sun coming through the stitching holes. The instructions tell you it is not waterproof and you have to buy an extra seam sealant, but I... (read more)

We have several Gala tents of all sizes and hire them out. We haven't had any issues and their durability is first class. The service offered by the company is excellent, I would recommend them anytime. The multi span tents are well made, heavy duty tubing and good firm joints. The fabric choice is good although we tend to use the cheaper PE fabric as it is easier for us to keep clean. With a full range of accessories from liners to heaters there is little need to shop around. The only... (read more)

I have also bought a tent from Tent GalaTent and every seam is leaking, I have bought seam sealant from a camping supplies and informed Galatent of problem and they have agreed to send me some also. I have sealed all the wall seams with sealer I purchased and this morning when I got up they were still leaking. Having read of similar issues I am now concerned that this problem cannot be resolved. I will reseal seams when sealer arrives from Galatent and see what happens but previous reviews... (read more)

We ordered the tent for our son's 18th birthday party and it arrived in good time and in excellent condition. It was easy to erect and take down. The weather was wet and windy but the guests stayed dry and warm. The only thing we discovered was that the roof leg joints could not be hooked into the poles when the tent was zipped up - not a major criticism just a minor design fault! Also the tent pegs need more of a hook on the top as the eyelets just pulled off in the wind - again... (read more)

We are very impressed with the quality of this structure from Gala, both the thickness of the cover and the sturdiness of the frame. We were in two minds whether to spend the extra money on this tent, but now we've seen it erected we are pleased we did. The customer service we received was efficient and friendly (many thanks Melissa!), and the delivery was prompt. It's also a great comfort knowing that we can order replacement parts to repair and adapt our tent, as we are using it to protect... (read more)

I used the Gala Star Shade for two charity events in September 2011. For the first event the Gala Star Shade was used to shelter various stalls (tombola etc) and for the second it acted as a location for the refreshments. The weather at the first event was poor, with high winds and intermittent showers - some of which were very heavy. The open-sides of the Star Shade meant that visitors could see what was on offer without the need for additional signage. The open sides also enabled a lot of... (read more)

I must say I'm totally 100% satisfied with the quality of the Marquee purchased from Gala Tent, the quality of the materials is very high and the frame is very sturdy. I will be purchasing the fabric lining sometime soon, as it'll make the inside just a bit more special for summer parties next year. We've even had enquiries from neighbours about renting it - so it could end up paying for itself, RESULT!!! The heaters we purchased at the same time made a real difference to the late night...

At very short notice Galatent help us in providing a beautiful and unique Star Marquee for a Cystic Fibrosis charity event that was being held at our venue. They brought 2 different sizes as we weren't sure what would fit and took time to ensure it was perfect for the event. Thank you to all involved, I know it was very much appreciated by the charity, organisers and guests to the event. (read more)

First caller of the first day. Saw what I wanted and asked my questions. Received the right answers so I went and bought it there and then. Bit of a pain carting it up to York on holiday with me but what the heck you do not look a gift horse in the mouth. The lady at the factory was very efficient and I was driving away within 20 minutes of arriving. My only complaint was the weather could have been better. (read more)

I received my Light Set less than 24 hours after ordering from Gala Tent - I didn't expect it that quickly. It was very well packed and in perfect condition when opened. It will do exactly what I wanted it for - lighting up several gazebos over Halloween weekend. When I emailed Gala Tent my questions were answered very quickly, infact the whole transaction was perfect. One very satisfied customer! Phil - Canvey Island, Essex (read more)

VERY VERY dissapointed with gala tent. Roof canopy leaks badly through the stitching When we contacted the company we were sent a silacone seam seal that didnt work. In desperation we ordered a new top of the range canopy which leaked through the stitching in exactly the same fashion. The company only responded to our requests for a telephone call after putting the money into dispute. At which we were threatened with no action till we released the funds. Currently they have the canopy and... (read more)

Thank you for the excellent service and rapid delivery.Our order was for two budget gazebos 3mx3m, two foldable 6ft trestle tables and one folding 4ft table - all for a summer party in our garden. The gazebos were higher quality and better priced than any we had seen. In practice they were great. The folding mechanism worked smoothly & they were genuinely easy for two adults to erect. It is true that this can be done in less than 10 minutes. When erected the gazebos were stable when placed... (read more)

What a pleasure to deal with a company who are helpful, polite and efficient. We ordered a Gala shade pro MX 3m x 3m shortly before 3.00 p.m and received it at 8.45 a.m next day. Heavier than expected but no danger of it being blown away by the wind! A good solid product and pleasing to the eye.

The Gala Marquee 12m x 6m is great. Exactly what we need for our Village Hall. I am very impressed with the quality of the materials used. Ideal for all our village functions.
I like the website and the fact that you can always contact the company by phone. However sometimes the communication is not what it should be. I was promised a delivery date but this was missed and the marquee was delivered a week later thankfully just before a major village event.
When I ordered it would have been... (read more)

Easy to erect, only took half an hour compared to a similiar sized gazebo we borrowed from a friend, which took 1 hour 45 minutes with 7 people. The service from Gala Tents was efficient and quick, they even managed to add an extra item to my order, which was an afterthought on my behalf. The quality of the structure is excellent and the carry case for the structure is an excellent idea as it keeps everything together. Thanks very much for an excellent service.

I purchased a 3m x 4m Multi-Span Gala Tent Marquee (Poly/PVC) in May 2009 to cover a decked area at the back of my house. It has provided protection from sun, wind and rain since then without fault.

When I started my Marquee hire busniess, Gala Tent was the first company we selected to buy our stock from. Its been six year this september that we use them. The reason is excellent customer service, all the sale representors are very friendly, polite and very helpful. Second reason is their prices. The quality might not be as good as other companies but due to the credit crunch people are looking to hire for less. The good thing is that the prices are affordable that I personally think...

I made the mistake of purchasing a gazebo from a different company for my first attempt at displaying my work at an outdoor event.
