Which is the best SaddleSpan for your event?

SaddleSpan tents are fantastic for outdoor events. They are versatile, customisable and offer all the space you need, as well as being simple and quick to erect and put down. All you really need to have a SaddleSpan for your event is enough floor space.

The great thing about this kind of event tent is that it is modular, which means that it can be customised and rebuilt to better suit your needs. There are lots of configurations for the SaddleSpan, some of which can be used in conjunction with each other to create a customised space. The following are among the most popular configurations:

  • S1000 TriSpan – up to 470 square metres and space for up to 940 people, this tent provides a simple but impressively shaped canopy perfect for small sites and easy transportation around the country (making it ideal for roadshows!)
  • S2000 SaddleSpan – up to 250 square metres and space for up to 500 people, popularly used as a stage cover
  • S5000 SaddleSpan – up to 500 square metres and space for up to 800 people, with a choice of canopy, concert and enclosed. Another popular option for festivals and gigs, as the S5000 makes a perfect stage cover.
  • S5000 DuoSpan – up to 900 square metres and space for up to 1,800 people, this tent is essentially two S5000 SaddleSpans connected together
  • S5000 TriSpan – up to 1400 square metres and space for up to 2,800 people, this tent creates a massive marquee which can be completely enclosed or open at all sides, with plenty of space for creating different zones for your event.

If you’re planning an outdoor event in one of these tents, how do you choose the configuration that’s best for you? Here are some tips:

  • Work out how much space you need, and how much you have available. Take into account how many guests you’re expecting, what space you need (i.e. for exhibiting products, for dance floors and bars) and how much flat, even floor space you have at your site. This will give you a rough idea of the size of SaddleSpan you’ll need, or that you can fit in.


  • Choose the right tent for the nature of your venue. If your event is music or performance based, the S2000 or S5000 SaddleSpan is the ideal stage cover, providing excellent acoustics and cover for your musicians. However, if you’re holding a corporate event with many different events going on at once, something like the S5000 TriSpan with the option to create many different ‘zones’ would be more suitable.


  • Get some expert advice. These tents can be customised and built to suit the needs of your event, so to get the perfect fit it may be best to speak to an expert, such as one of the team at Amazing Tents. Explain your event and your needs and get a better idea of the type of SaddleSpan that fits the bill.
