The Pig Hotel, African Safari Theme Tent


Tent Hire Case Study


Tents Joined Together

We were approached by the clients, The Pig Hotel in Brockenhurst, Hampshire to provide them with a vintage green army tent to be the main venue for their African Safari theme event for 100 people.

The event was to commemorate a trip to 6 African countries by motorbike enthusiasts. Over The Moon were asked for a suitable size tent, a covered awning and director style canvas chairs. The Pig Hotel did a grand job with props to make the african safari theme come alive in the tent.

Client Background & Brief

Can You...?

Located in the New Forest, THE PIG in Brockenhurst is the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle. A beautiful setting for an upmarket restaurant and hotel. Everything is driven by the gardener, forager and chef from the Kitchen Garden. They have a strong brand identity and wanted the right sort of tents to fit the brand.  Over The Moon’s vintage army tents were just the ticket.
