After first entering the UK event market in 2014 in partnership with leading outdoor events company PapaKåta, Sperry Tents has expanded once again with a second UK-based division, Sperry Tents South West, led by Director Tim Francis, making the luxury tents more widely available across the UK.
Headquartered near Padstow, this new office will provide the country’s South West region, including Cornwall, Devon, Somerset and Dorset, with the opportunity to hire Sperry Tents for weddings and special occasions. Besides a range of tent sizes, Sperry Tents South West will also provide wood flooring, band stages and creative lighting options for tent interiors.
“After the tremendous success of PapaKåta in their first couple of seasons of Sperry Tent events, and the demand they have experienced from the South West, we decided the time was right to open a new rental division,” said Sperry Tents President Tim Sperry.
Richard Monaghan, founder of PapaKåta added: “We’ve had an incredible time launching Sperry Tents into the UK and delivering 135 events to date. Despite opening our new Southern base last year, the South West has remained a difficult region for us to service. We’re really pleased that through this new alliance with Sperry Tents, brides, grooms and event planners will be available to have their dream Sperry event.”
“Clients are looking for a more sophisticated marquee that is a showpiece all on its own,” said Sperry Tents South West Director Tim Francis, who is currently providing quotes for the 2016-17 seasons. “A Sperry Tent is just that, a thoughtfully conceived piece of fabric art with hand-crafted timber poles and nautical design cues that complements any landscape, and in particular the beautiful coastline and heritage of the South West.”
