Are the tipis waterproof?
Yes, all our tipis are waterproof when the canvas cover is on.
WHAT SIZE Tipi WILL I REQUIRE?
There are numerous factors that need to be taken into account when selecting your Tipi size. Please see a list of factors to consider below:
- How many guests will be attending your event?
- Will the function be a sit down or stand up event?
- Depending on the weather, will you desire the tipi to have its sides up or down?
- How will the interior space of the tipi be styled (ie. will you require: Dance Floor, Bar, Casual Seating, Lounge Seating, Fire Place).
CAN A TIPI BE SET UP ON A SLOPING SURFACE?
We do not recommend tipis to be constructed on a sloping surface. However, on some occasions tipis can be set up where the surface has a gradual incline/decline. To confirm your location and surface please email our team with photographs of the desired area for further inspection.
DO YOU SUPPLY HEATING AND COOLING?
At Wandering Events we offer our clients a selection of add ons to hire. This includes indoor Bamse fireplaces and fans. In summer we recommend removing the canvas sides of the tipi allowing natural airflow, however fans can be installed if desired.
What happens if the weather is unforeseen?
Leading into your event it is recommend to watch the weather forecast. In the case of rain, this should not effect your tipi event unless there is risk of flooding. With strong winds the sides of the tipi may have to be rearranged to create optimal shelter. Our team will liaise directly with the client to determine a plan (or plan B).
How many people can a tipi tent seat?
Please refer to our ‘Floor Plans’ page where you can find the best size tipi to cater for your event.
As well as tipi tents, what else can I hire from you?
- Lighting with festoons and/or fairy lights
- Woven matting/flooring
- Tables and chairs
- Indoor Bamse Fireplace
- Dance Floor
HOW MANY DAYS/HOURS IS THE TIPI HIRE PERIOD?
The standard tipi hire for Wandering Events is 48 hours.
Your tipi will be constructed roughly two days prior to your event and will be removed one or two days post event. Please be aware that weather plays a role in when our Tipis can be set-up and removed, however our team will monitor weather conditions leading into your event. If you wish to hire a tipi for a longer duration this can be arranged upon quoting.
Do I need to organise insurance for my event?
Yes, we highly recommend taking our event insurance and speaking directly with a professional within the insurance industry.
What is Wandering Events Damage Waiver?
Our Damage Waiver is in place to cover you for loss or accident to our tipis during your event. With our Damage Waiver in place you will not have to include this in your event insurance. For further information please call our team.
Does your Damage Waiver mean we do not need A seperate insurance cover?
No, the Damage Waiver will only cover you for loss or accident to the tipi (and additional equipment if hired from Wandering Events). We highly recommend additional cover for third party protection, cancellation etc. Please consult a professional for further advice.
