How we work


Give us a call or send us a message and we can talk you through the process and answer any questions that you may have.  There is no one size that fits all but we tend to follow a simple set of loose steps. You will either have a venue in mind or if not we can recommend locations or source one for you. Once the site is selected we will carry out a survey and walk through your plans, following up with a formal quote.  If you wish to go ahead, 25% secures the booking with the remainder payable 4 weeks in advance of the date.

One month before your event we’ll make sure your happy with everything that we’re due to bring and finalize things like the floor plan and the tipi layouts however we’re also happy doing this earlier should you need to get you tables planned in advance.

On the week of the build we’ll aim to hand over most structures by Thursday evening so you have time to personalize them before your event and we may be able to help hang a few decorations should you need us to too .

Once our conversation starts, we are there to talk to and question right up until the tipi’s are open for use. We’ll then pop back after your event to dismantle and pack everything.


We try to be as upfront as possible about the expected costs and we don’t add extras for things you should normally expect to be included. We also now offer off-peak seasonal pricing along with our wooden door systems making the tipis super cosy for hosting magical late autumn and festive parties.

Paul has been involved in the media industry and IT for the last 20 years and with both looking for new challenges and loving the festival party vibe we launched The Natural Tent Company. We’re looking forward to building tipis and helping you get that perfect party vibe for years to come.
