Thornton Manor classes itself as the ‘perfect wedding venue’ in Cheshire, UK, and it’s hard not to argue with this statement when you see the range of exquisite but beautifully varied locations and function rooms they can offer.

The venue is no stranger to large marquees and event structures. They have, for a number of years, used marquees at two sites within the ground. Both of these marquees successfully compliment the Manor and are an integral part of the day to day business.

The owner came to HTS tentiQ when he realised there was a need for something on a much larger scale to the existing structures. He wanted a large marquee that could specifically cater for conferences, exhibitions and Asian weddings.


HTS tentiQ provided Thornton Manor with a large marquee structure that consisted of the following: A main structure 25.00m span x 55.00m long, an ancillary structure to hold the kitchens, bar & toilets 15.00m span x 50.00m long and an entrance pagoda 10.00m square.

The large marquee was installed within the walled garden at the manor, close to the manor itself, and aptly named the Walled Garden Pavilion.

The marquee had Thermo insulated roofs, double glazed glass walling and insulated wall panels. The venue can comfortably accommodate 800 to 1000 people seated. As well as Asian and large wedding customers it is also attracting the corporate world with its suitability for exhibitions and conferences.

The Manor is in a good location to service the needs of the city’s Manchester, Liverpool & Chester and with such a large and exclusive marquee permanently located, there is a huge potential wedding and conference market it can cater for.
