THE ORIGINAL WHITE KATA TIPI COMPANY

Meet our gorgeous tipis and tents

Here's a brief intro to our great tipi's and bedouin tents. There are a few different types and shapes, so we've broken it down into a handy guide to make it easier for you to work out what you might need for your event.

Each type shows the number of guests it can accommodate and some suggestions on what it can be used for. Take a look through the guide and then drop us a line to talk to us about the requirements for your event.

We've also put together some packages that include all of the essentials you'll need, like tables, chairs and lighting for one cost on the Your Event page.

The Stratus Tipi

The Stratus tipi is our main event space and will give your event that real wow factor. Guests will be truly amazed by the spaces we can create and will definitely leave a lasting memory of their experience.

New for 2016, we will be providing our stratus tipis with an off white canvas, making them an absolutely stunning venue, particularly for weddings. We will be one of the first companies to offer these amazing tipis for hire, so please get in touch and be one the first to have them at your wedding or event! For a preview of these, check out our blog post about them. They will be available to hire from 1st March 2016, so book now to avoid missing out! 

The Stratus is incredibly versatile and can be used on it's own or joined with other Stratus tipis to create a larger space. We can link any number of them together, the only limitation is your imagination!

The sides of the Stratus can be raised, which has two advantages. The first is that we can then link them to others, the second is it that it can totally change the space completely by having one side up or all the  sides up. This is why it's also called a giant hat tipi! In summer, this is a really great feature and makes the tipis ideal for some al fresco dining or an outdoor bar area. With the sides down in winter we can add a fire pit and heating to make a cosy and festive space, ideal for a winter wedding or christmas party!

They are perfect for weddings, corporate events, milestone birthdays and festivals.

As they can be linked together, the number of seated guests you can have can range from 20 to 60 with one Stratus and upto around 300 with 6 or more tipis joined together.

We can supply dancefloors, fire pits and bar areas that can be used with the Stratus tipis and these elements all come together to make the Stratus the ultimate outdoor event space.

They measure 10.3m in diameter and have a covered space of 83 square meters with the brim down. 

They are constructed from solid wood beams and our canopy is flame retardant and complies with all fire safety regulations.

We've put together some different configurations, along with costs, on the Your Event page to help you choose what's right for you.

The Cirrus 40 Tipi

The Cirrus 40 is the baby brother of the Stratus, but don't be fooled into thinking it's not equally as versatile.

The great thing about the Cirrus is that it can be linked to our amazing Stratus tipi's to create seperate spaces for chill out area's, a bar, a reception space or your very own nightclub! The sides of the Cirrus cannot be raised and you can't link them together, but it has a huge entrance, which makes it perfect for small parties, exhibitions, festival bars or birthdays if used on its own.

The Cirrus can comfortably accommodate around up to 40 people seated and roughly up to 55 people standing.

As with the Stratus, we can supply bars or chill out furniture to create a lovely cosy and relaxing lounge space for you and your guests. It's a great addition to a Stratus and will really add something different to any event.

The Cirrus measures 8.25m in diameter and has a covered space of 53 square meters.

They are constructed in a similar way to the Stratus with solid wood beams and a fire retardant canvas.

Bedouin Tents

Our lovely Bedouin Tents are a beautiful alternative to the tipis or a traditional marquee. They are versatile and can be erected almost anywhere and on various types of terrain. Our bedouin tents can be set up around objects and buildings, so there is much more scope to have your event in unusual locations with these fabulous structures. As with our tipis, the canvas is totally waterproof and fire retardent.

The other great advantage of the bedouin tents is that we can design different shapes, due to the stretch properties of the canvas. This means we can create some visually stunning venues, which can be tailored to your requirements.

The tents lend themselves perfectly for parties, birthdays or festivals and they are particularly popular for weddings and with our corporate clients for exhibitions, brand events and marketing. Other uses include chill out areas or bars.

The tents can be shaped into your desired look by placing the internal poles in various positions and this is what dictates the shape of the canopy. Due to their construction with aluminium internal poles, they can be erected relatively quickly. A medium sized structure could be set up in just a couple of hours, with larger tents able to be completed between 3 - 5 hours dependant upon the weather conditions and site access.

Our tents come in a range of sizes and we've put some package ideas and costs together in a handy guide on the Your Event page.

In addition to all this, we can also provide branded bedouin tents in a range of colours and sizes for your company or corporate event. Just get in touch with us and we can put together a bespoke quote tailored to your requirements.
