HISTORICAL TENTS

We produce a broad range of historical tents dating from the 15th to 17th century. These tents and pavilions provided a picturesque backdrop to the many battles and tournaments of the age. Today they are regularly used for battle re-enactments, TV and film sets, theatre, exhibitions and promotions.

MATERIAL

Our 300g (10.5oz) and 360g (13oz) historical tents are made entirely from 100% cotton. The 420g(15oz) is a 50% cotton 50% polyester mixed weave for extra durability. All of our tents are water and rot resistant and upon request we can provide fire retardent canvas at an additional cost. The covers are very durable and we are happy to advise as to which is best for your needs.

COLOURS

We can make your historical tent in the colour(s) of your choice, but please note that coloured tents are only available in 300g (10.5oz) canvas.

STAKES AND PEGS

We can provide you with either VARIANT A (very strong steel stakes and pegs) or VARIANT B (wooden stakes and pegs). If you are intending to use your tent regularly on hard or stony ground we would recommend variant A the steel stakes should last you a lifetime.

SCALLOPS AND FLAGS

Choose the shape of the tent’s scallops from a range of historically accurate designs (see below).

Choose between flag style A or B.
