Delivery, event locations & venues
What areas do you cover?
We provide tipis for events across the UK and into Europe. Delivery charges are calculated at cost price, based on the distance between your venue and our base.
Where is your base?
We are based in North Devon.
What should I consider when choosing a site?
- Does your prospective site have good access for 4×4 vehicles?
- How exposed is the site? Is there a backup site available?
- Is the ground well drained?
- Is the ground level?
- Does the site have provision of services e.g. lavatories, water and power?
If you are at all unsure about your site please get in touch. We are more than happy to carry out a free, no obligation site visit if there are any concerns.
How much ground space do the tipis need?
Each Giant Hat tipi is 10.3 metres in diameter with the sides down, and 13 metres with all of the sides raised. The amount of ground space required is dependent on how many tipis you need and your chosen configuration. Our Floor plans & prices page gives several examples and measurements.
Can the tipis be set up on uneven/sloping ground?
Our tipis can be set up on a slight slope, but if the level of the ground is too disjointed the poles and canvases will be out of alignment, and will not join together correctly. It would also be uncomfortable for your guests as the furnishings may be wobbly inside the tipis. If you have any doubts we will happily come and visit your site.
Can the tipis be set up on hard standing?
We can set the tipis up on tarmac, hardcore and chippings, but we have to drill into the surface, which may cause damage. Unfortunately, we cannot pitch our tipis on concrete.
Can you suggest a venue?
Yes. We have a list of lovely venues, on Our Friends page, all of which we have worked with and can recommend.
