We had a wonderful experience with Abacus from start to finish. They were extremely professional and accommodated all of our wishes. Each and every one of the staff members we came across were very pleasant to deal with and we would have no hesitation in recommending them to others.

Thanks to Mark and his team who were so helpful and attentive as well as happy to adjust to our needs.


Excellent customer service and communication from start to finish. Did exactly as they said. Efficient installation. Good clean marquee. Would use again and will recommend.

Abacus did a fantastic job providing a marquee for my 50th birthday party. They were great to deal with:flexible, responsive, pleasant and reliable. They provided good advice in advance of the event and the installation team were prompt, polite and solutions-based. I would recommend them 100%. I was a bit nervous about whether a marquee attached to the house would work for a party in January but it absolutely did! It looked brilliant and it was the perfect temperature inside. The bar, fridge, poseur tables and light up numbers really enhanced the party experience. Thanks Abacus for a great experience from start to finish.

We used Abacus in January 2024 for a family party. It was a small 40 person event and they had installed a marquee against the back of our house. It came with flooring, lights & heating. The guys that came to install & collect the marquee were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Everything was very clear and their website was by far the most easiest to use and understand what we were getting. We have plenty of compliments between friends & family too. I will defo be using again!
