The Tea Tent has grown, and moved.

Recommended Posts

Bookings for this year's SGL Star Party are significantly up so we have rented a Marquee.

The Marquee is significantly larger and more substantial than our usual Tea Tent so will be positioned at the bottom of Hare (you can't miss it!). There will be plenty of tables, chairs and lighting. 

It will be the central hub for gatherings and for events like the Talks, informal workshops and the Quiz. FLO's stall will most likely be there, or next to it, on the Saturday. 

Considering the forecast(!) we think the Marquee will be very useful 🙂

Sounds like just the thing Steve! We were considering not making the journey for two days of rain, having sat there before for a very wet star party, but the marquee will give us a chance to get together more easily.

Thank you to FLO for this :)

That's the idea. It has plenty of space, tables and chairs. And the usual tea, coffee and cakes. It will be fun 🙂

Wow, that’s not a marquee, it’s a hanger!!! Serious bit of kit, well done! Will be very welcome this weekend, I’m sure, and will make all the difference having somewhere warm and dry to come.

It's probably a good thing Doctor Martin won't be there on quiz night - he'd probably start a conga around those tables (you know what a terror he is!😉).

Thank you FLO, I know that can't have been cheap. That is an incredibly generous gesture and I'm sure will make a huge difference to what promises to be a slightly moist weekend.

I hope you've got it well tied down! It's very windy here in Carmarthenshire.

The marquee was an excellent idea and it worked really well. Thanks for sorting it!

The marquee was a fabulous idea and gave a decent and sheltered place for everyone to meet up and socialise. Thank you.
