FAQs - Fjell Event Tipis
There's no such thing as a stupid question! Events are what we do and we appreciate you may not be used to how things work. The Fjell team are here to help; take a look at our FAQs for more info, but, if you are unsure please call or email.
Where do you supply?
We supply event tipis to clients in the North of England & Scotland and further afield in our off season.
Can you suggest a venue?
We have a list of venues on our ‘Venue & Friends’ page and have a number of exclusive venues that take a limited number of events which we’d be pleased to discuss in person.
I have a venue but don’t know if it’s suitable?
We are always happy to discuss and check the suitability of venues for prospective clients.
How many Tipis will I need?
We recommend up to 50 seated guests per tipi to allow for stages, dance floors, bars etc.
How much will it cost and what does your quote include?
All our quotes are itemised showing the number of tipis, accessories and delivery charges.
What electricity supply will I need for my event?
If there isn’t a suitable power supply at your venue we will source an event generator on your behalf from the nearest reliable supplier who we have past experience working with.
It’s helpful to let us know as soon as possible who and what other suppliers caterers, DJ’s, bands etc require.
Do you supply top quality loos?
Yes we can hire these for you or recommend a supplier if you’d prefer to book them directly.
Do you do winter events?
Yes and we offer seasonal discounts. We also supply hard flooring and specialist winter fixings that significantly increase the strength of our tipis.
Do we need hard flooring?
This depends on the venue, the time of year and the type of event. If your venue is, or likely to be soft underfoot then we recommend a hard sub floor throughout the year. From October to April we strongly recommend a hard sub floor. If your guests are likely to be wearing high heels then it’s also worth considering.
Do we need heating?
From May to Sept possibly from October to April we recommend our space heaters. We stock top of the range space heaters which are reliable with long run times.
When can we have access to the tipis?
When the tipis are erected and the installation complete we undertake a full health & safety check.
Once this is done we induct customers on how everything works and ask them to sign our delivery notes etc. Ideally we like to give clients a 24 hour window prior to their event to allow caterers to set tables, florists to decorate etc. Though this can vary depending on the venue.
Can we put up bunting and have T lights or candles on the tables?
Yes to all three but we do ask customers to put T light and candles in holders?
Can we cook marsh mallows on the fire pit?
Absolutely! Please note we have 2 types of fire pit one that’s fuelled by logs another by bioethanol.
You can’t toast marshmallows on the bioethanol fuelled fire pit.
When do you set up and take down the tipis?
We can be flexible though typically set up on Tues, Weds & Thurs and take down on Sun & Mon. If clients want to extend their hire period we can accommodate this on a first come first served basis.
