Bring History to Your Event with Authentic Vintage British Army Tents

Step back in time with our collection of genuine vintage British Army tents, some dating back to the Second World War (1944!). These tents served our armed forces until the 1980s, built to withstand harsh conditions with military-grade durability. We sourced our first 60ft tent in 1999, meticulously maintaining them to retain their historic charm.

Tent Sizes


Vintage Military tents are not just for a military theme, they also lend themselves to Safari/Bush/’Out Of Africa’, Steampunk, Festival & Shabby-Chic themed events.

See our vintage photo album for more pics of the tent with period decor.

TV & Film Tents

These tents have appeared in the TV series ‘Band Of Brothers’,, ‘Midsummer Murders’,  and the BBC’s ‘Crimson Fields’ , ‘Call The Midwife’ and ‘SAS Rogue Heroes. The military tent’s retro looks are very popular, its canvas, ropes and webbing add authenticity that modern fabrics cannot.

Coffee Bean


We have the largest collection of canvas for Vintage Military Tent Hire in the UK. We can supply 15 seperate tents with upto 20 middle sections available.

Built to your spec

The military tent is sectional and the length can be made to the size you require.

For use as a dining tent the most efficient seating is to use rectangular tables and benches style along the tent’s length.

By the way..
  • The tent is 6m/20ft wide In its smallest size it is 7m/24ft x 6m/20ft which gives an area of 48msq/480ftsq. Enough for approx 30 standing or 20 dining.
  • We can build a marquee with upto 10 sections 20ft x 110ft. Enough for approx 270 standing or 170 dining.
  • The walls at the edge are approx 1.50cm/5ft high. We can put 6ft wall poles in with non standard khaki walls.
  • The ceiling is 3.6m/12ft high
  • When erected the ropes will mean that the area required is larger by 10ft all around the edge of the tent itself.
  • We have some sections which date from 1945 and the fabric is a more ochre brown, where as the later 70’s canvas is a olive green.
