Over to the lovely ladies at Big Tops & Tall Tales to tell you a little bit more…

“We are a team of four women who have combined our talents to create an energetic, forward thinking new company that prides it’s self on having both an innovative fresh feel as well as a tantalising underground style.

We specialise in themed ‘Pop Up’ bars and contemporary creative outdoor spaces. Coming from backgrounds in costume design, catering, interior design, textile and performance art and combined with years of experience in providing themed bars at various UK festivals and events, we are able to offer you the opportunity to treat your guests to a truly unique and individual wedding bar experience.

Our ‘Pop Up’ bars are ideal for Tipi and marquee weddings and all outdoor settings and create an additional space for your guests to mingle.

Why not choose from one of our ‘off the hanger’ themes that range from a contemporary festival bar, serving locally sourced organic cider and ale, an Alice in Wonderland themed cocktail bar, a candle lit Arabian Dream or Vintage Circus bar.

Choose from one of the above or take the opportunity to express your creativity.  Arrange a consultation with one of our design team and together we will turn your ideas into reality by creating a themed bar tailored to your bespoke requirements.

This can fit in seamlessly with the rest of your wedding theme or if you fancy something completely different, why not create a contrast space and unleash your wilder side!

We can decorate the existing bar at your chosen venue or bring one of our marquees and set up a fully stocked themed ‘Pop Up’ bar in the grounds of your event.

We provide decor, themed seating area for your guests, professional staff either costumed or in aprons and waistcoats, lighting, PA and everything required for a fully working bar. There are several packages available.

Now you can kick back and relax knowing that your event will go with a bang!
