Big Hat Tipis

For maximum flexibility

The largest tipi in our range, the Big Hat gets its name from the ability to raise and lower the brim of the structure, like a hat, to interlink it to another tipi and create a larger event space.

Standalone, this large tipi can cater for up to 70 people seated on round tables and between 42-56 people seated on wooden tables and benches. With its sides down it takes the form of a traditional event tipi and during the winter months, a fire pit and entrance porch with wooden doors can create a cosy atmosphere inside for guests, while allowing easy access to and from the tipi. When the sun is shining, sides can be lifted, which increases the space under the canvas and allows guests to roam freely to and from the tipi while enjoying the scenery around them. It’s this freedom of movement that makes tipis a winner on the outdoor events platform and can transform at will to make every event feel unique.

If you are a venue wanting to cater for outdoor weddings, or an entrepreneur wishing to establish your own tipi-hire company, then a Big Hat is the core structure for which to build your fleet. The Big Hat can be interlinked to the other two sizes of tipis we have, but as a rough guide, if you want to cater for up to 120 people for an event, two Big Hats would be the recommendation.

Please note: Numbers may vary depending on your tipi interior i.e. dancefloor, bar and staging.
