Marquee Electrical Courses

We have designed our marquee lighting packages to be as simple as possible, simply connect the leads together plug in to the house/extension lead and you’re done. If your customer needs another power supply then an additional extension lead would usually do the job.

This simple system is perfect when you’re starting up a marquee hire business but after a while the jobs will become more intricate and so do the electrics. At this point you need to consider attending training courses.

Our friends at Essential Supplies are running electrical courses aimed at the marquee hire industry:

Event Electrics Course:

Our one day workshop is specifically aimed at those working in the Marquee
& Events industry. We will cover all aspects of the design, installation and testing of temporary electrical systems for events. The course is aimed at those who specify and install such systems but have no formal electrical qualification. We will guide candidates through best practises in installing electrical and lighting systems in temporary structures for events, including how to avoid some common pitfalls and some not so obvious. There will also be plenty of opportunities to get up close and personal with some of our latest products specifically designs for our industry.
This is a non examined course and provides no formal qualification; it is de-signed to provide candidates with an awareness of the issues surrounding electrical systems for temporary events. Candidates will receive a certificate of attendance upon completion and a set of course notes.
Price: £180 + VAT per candidate

Event Lighting Course:

Our one day workshop is specifically aimed at those working within the events industry. We shall cover methods and types of lighting and how to install your system. This is a non examined course and provides no formal qualification; it is de-signed to help candidates with lighting. Candidates will receive a certificate of attendance upon completion.
Price: £180 + VAT per candidate

PAT Testing Course:

The aim of our one day ‘practical’ workshop is to obtain an understanding of why
PAT Testing is necessary and be able to demonstrate safely and accurately all aspects of electrical testing necessary to perform PAT tests on your own or other peoples electrical equipment.

The course is specially designed for those within the events industry, looking at key
Products, unique to the Events World. The testing techniques learnt can be used in any industry. You will be shown how to PAT test a wide range of our products from extension leads to metal light fittings and from simple distribution boards to power tools. To ensure you get the most out of the course we aim to have a maximum of 6 Candidates on each course.
Price: £220 + VAT per candidate

If you have been in the hire industry for a few years and look to be taking the next step up in complexity of marquee bookings then I would recommend attending the Event Electrics Course first with the Event Lighting Course later.

All of your electrics require regular PAT testing, rather than paying an electrician to come in and test them it’s likely a wise investment to train you or a reliable member of staff up as a PAT tester.

At DIY Marquees we always try to promote best practice, we offer help and advice throughout the life of our marquees and in doing so try to ensure our marquee hirers can maintain good standards. Attending training courses like these that are specifically designed towards marquee hirers is good practice for everyone in the industry.

Lodge Brothers Celebrated with the Community this Christmas

Lodge Brothers funeral plans Ham go all out with their window dressing over special occasions, particularly over the Christmas season. Lodge Brothers funeral directors Ham enjoy dressing their windows with different displays really getting into the holiday season. Have a look at what other Lodge Brothers have been setting up over December.


December 8th, 2017

Each year, all Lodge Brothers branches put up a ‘Memory Tree’, allowing people the opportunity to write a card to remember a loved one who has passed away. In Windsor, branch arranger Jill Palmer went one stage further and called on some local school children to help decorate her tree, and then last Sunday, she invited a local Minister to bless the tree in a short service at the branch in St Leonard’s Road.
Invitations were sent to those families who Jill had met throughout 2017, and no less than 28 people turned up to the service!
“It was a very meaningful time to those who came along,” Jill said, “and we stayed afterwards to chat over a mince pie and a drink. It was a special occasion”.

This year there was great fun had in Lightwater

November 30th, 2017

Each year the village of Lightwater comes together to celebrate Christmas with ‘The Fayre in the Square’ in early December. The week before, the lights are switched on, and Lodge Brothers Funeral Directors have their part to play. Situated in The Square for a year now, Lodge Brothers staff have proved they are not just there for the ‘sad days in life’.

Richard Leachman, District Manager, said: “The spider-web effect of the lights this year is quite stunning. I am pleased that we can again be a part of the lighting-up of the village”.

The event was to take place in their recently built school sports hall. This presented a number of issues including tight access, weight loading need to be spread in order to protect the flooring and a large build in tight space conditions. The client also requested internal dressing of the main reception entrance to the sports hall and corridors to the loo area.


A 12m x 27m main structure, a walkway reception area and a 6m x 12m catering facility. Internally we supplied hardwood flooring, carpet, dancefloor, furniture, staging forliveband and all associated power requirements. The lighting was a mix of chandeliers,uplightersand black starlight roof linings. Theschoolscolours of lilac and green were also suppliedforthe dressing of the marquee.

A 9x18m (30x60ft) clearspan frame marquee for visitors and exhibitors, with staging for presentations and for the Chairman of Mole Valley to address the visitors. In addition we supplied a mixture of furniture, in the way of 6ft long trestle tables, 5ft round tables and 4ft round tables with chairs for visitors to sit at. We also provided a luxury loo unit adjacent to the marquee.

To ensure that impact on the ground was limited to the nature of the space, we used our track way to protect the ground, in addition we used two of our land rovers and trailers to transport the equipment to avoid using heavy Lorries.


“I just wanted to say a big thank you for providing exceptional service, on what was an exceptionally awful weekend. I have had back some really positive things about the events that could not have taken place without your assistance”.

dblo Architects – Passionate about Design

There is nothing more beautiful than architecture, some of which shapes the world we live in and formed our history. Many architecture buildings tell us much about the people who went before us and the history in those times.

dblo Associates residential architects London is a team of innovative and forward-thinking architects who are passionate about the history of architecture and how this influences modern day design.

In Ancient Egypt and other early societies, people believed in the omnipotence of Gods, with many aspects of daily life carried out with respect to the idea of the divine or supernatural and the way it was manifest in the mortal cycles of generations, years, seasons, days and nights.

Due to the scarcity of wood, the two predominant building materials used were sun-baked mud brick and stone, mainly limestone, but also sandstone and granite in large quantities.

The core of the pyramids consisted of stone, mud bricks, sand or gravel. For the casing, stones were used that had to be transported from farther away, predominantly white limestone from Tura and red granite from upper Egypt.

Dblo Architects recognise the importance of the history of architecture and its fundamentals which have shaped modern architecture.

If you are wanting to transform your living area or build a new home, contact dbloresidential new build developments to help achieve this.
