Party with Peaktipis

The end of this month marks our aMAYzing fifth birthday and what an incredible five years it has been! 2015 started on a high for us, winning the Wedding Industry awards ‘Best Marquee Provider’ in the East Midlands award and is testament to how far our small, but extremely passionate Tipi hire company has come over the last five years.
