Tipi Unique Beads

giant tipi

First up we have the kings of the tipi world, our beloved giant tipis. They are an event venue like no other, constantly providing versatile and striking spaces. With a maximum capacity of 80 seated and 140 standing max guests in each 10.3m structure, they are perfect for creating a whole host of different atmospheres.

More guests? No problem. You don’t just have to stick to the one giant tipi, as by joining several of our tents together the numbers of people enjoying the tipis can be increased. Some of our smaller structures can be linked with our giants to maximise your space and create different zones (bars, dance floor, chill-out areas) – the sky is the limit!

You can also choose to raise the canvas of the tipis to gain more room and to wow guests upon arrival. Or keep it closed down to later reveal the magical wonders inside! Our talented team can also be on-hand throughout the day to switch up your tipis and to alter the canvas to your liking.

Our giants are ​always the stars of the show, with so much scope to add personalised finishing touches. Bring in your favourite decorations, photographs, florals and colour schemes – even your own furnishings! We don’t mind how you choose to style our tipis, as long as it is personal to your special occasion.

Please note that all of our products/furnishings remain at a fixed price, yet the price of giant tipi will increase by a small £50 each year.

kung tipi

TU-kung-tipi

Our Kung tipis are a little smaller in diameter, but no smaller in character! The 8.25m tipis offer the same rustic charm as our giant tipis, yet with a slightly lower height and width. This tipi is able to seat 40 and stand 50+ people, so can still accommodate quite large guest numbers.

Another great quality of our kung tipis is that they can easily be linked to a giant tipi, helping to maximise your event space. Having this add-on structure gives guests an area to relax and escape the dance floor, as it provides intimacy, exclusivity and a cosy sanctuary. This is also a popular tipi to house bar areas, as you gain a whole 8m of workable room.

If your venue is tight on space (length and/or width) please don’t fret! The innovative LinkFlex systems allow our team to connect two kungs together, giving a longer and narrower structure of over 16m. Not only this, but we are able to fashion porch ways to generate as much room as possible.

Kung tipi: Versatile free-standing or linked structure with easy-manage openings & innovative add-ons offering extra room.

KUNG TIPI JNR

Meet our newest addition to our family – what a star she is! Our 6.5m
Kung Jnr is a real show-stopper. With all the charm and character of
our larger tipis, but with an intimate and quaint feel, this delightful space is a wonderful haven for so many super soirées.

What’s so unique about this beauty is her size. She’s a little smaller then her bigger brother (Kung at 8.25m), but perfectly suited for smaller spaces such as gardens, and city centre/urban green-spaces.

This tipi is extra special when styled as a children’s play den or a romantic
glamping retreat! Why not gather your glam squad and
share unforgettable moments in your very own luxury pamper suite?

Looking for an out-of-the-box way of thinking, opt for our Kung Jnr as the freshest team-building space. With ample head height and room for up to 20 people standing, this memorable event space makes for the perfect workshop, keynote session, or creative break-out hub for those blue-sky moments.

pagoda

TU pagoda tipi

Our handy 6m spaces have a multitude of uses. They link seamlessly with our giant tipis – blending in beautifully due to the pitched roof and honeycomb coloured canvas. With four detachable and easy-to-open sides, you can choose to remove the panels as needed.

You can use them as the designated party tipi, complete with dance floor and band, or as a working kitchen and practical food service area. At previous events they also have become home to ceremony spaces, bars, cloakrooms, tech storage, crèches and more.

This is a stylish and harmonious tipi, making it one of our much-loved additions. By connecting two together, they can be transformed into a 12m x 6m space for a large outdoor bar and refreshment area. Perfect for bigger events where larger guest numbers will be regularly visiting the bar to indulge in their favourite booze!

ohana

TU-ohana-tipi

A distinctively quirky canopy structure – this is a hugely popular number and makes a fab addition to a whole range of events. We can’t tell you how much we love this unique 7m space!

Having 0pen canopies does inevitably mean exposure to the Great British elements. Yet fear not, this tipi provides shelter/shade during our unpredictable weather forecasts, and can be used with or without made-to-measure side walls (£35 per panel) to add extra coverage. They’re super handy for working staff inside the Ohana (ie foodies/bar folk) too, as they’ll help to keep your fineries and event trimmings where you’d planned. If the need arises, it’s so easy to switch it up and change/remove sides to suit changing weather, or perhaps even a change use of the space.

It is amazing for creating eye-catching entertainment stations, bar/welcome drink areas, or for an extra bit of outdoor seating. Yet with 7m of space you can do anything you like!

We just love the ethos behind the name, as it’s so in keeping with our company beliefs and policies. It really fits in with the concept of ‘Ohana’ as it is a place to gather and create memories with family and friends.

Ohana: What a star, 7m of gorgeousness. An essential sun (or rain) shelter, or perhaps a rather swanky bistro/foodie area. It’s easy to fall in love with this purse-friendly covered space and its many uses.

“Wallflex – that sounds interesting!” Yep it sure is! It’s a snazzy name, applied to our host of innovative solutions, that can help to square off or extend your giant tipis.

It could be that your aspirations are to create the best bar in town, or maybe you need a larger performance area. Positioning of these key zones is crucial! Ok so whilst we love our unique sloping tipi walls – we know they may be a tad restrictive where head height is of importance…

Lets make this easyyou’ll see Wallflex referenced henceforth as ‘tipi extensions/panoramic windows’. They can help you gain extra useable space, and better still, they’re roomy enough for even the tallest of bar staff/entertainers. More recently, our fantastic tipi extensions have played host to super-awesome, and super-sized event backdrops such as top tables, photobooths, giant donut walls & more.

Our panoramic windows embrace letting the outside in. During the colder months you can stay cosy and warm, whilst still enjoying those gorgeous winter views.  They’re quickly proving themselves as one of our most popular weather-proofing techniques, and still a favourite addition during summer events. They come complete with optional doorways, plus they’re really easy to flex (on/off, open/closed), so you’re in complete control!
