  • Rental of site £2,500
  • Charge to co-ordinate deliveries from various suppliers £500
  • Rental of Stretch Tent (1.5 times as much floor area as triple hat Tipi) £6,500

TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Grove T&Cs

 

  • Visits and viewings; please contact us by e-mail or phone to arrange a time to visit. We will do all we can to accommodate you!
  • Firm bookings require a signed contract and 50% deposit. The balance payment and £1,000 security deposit are due 12 weeks prior to your event
  • Music must be finished by 11.00pm
  • Taxis should be booked no later than 11.30pm
  • While we’re happy for you to make the Grove your own, we ask that any no decorative alterations are made to the tents themselves and that you are sympathetic to our lovely oak trees
  • There is an abundance of wildlife in the area, so only very well behaved dogs and guide dogs are allowed
  • The site is bounded on one side by the River Medway, there is also a shallow 'swale' within the grove - so we ask that the hirers are responsible for making sure that children and others are kept safe
