Syon Events – The Garden Room at Syon Park is read for the Summer Party Season

Our marquee is up and ready for events this summer in the picturesque surroundings of Syon Park. Attending a marquee event at our venue or thinking about choosing an event at Syon Park then read more to find out all that goes behind our marquee Install – here is your VIP access!
First things first is to have a plan. We have a great events team and Operations Manager here at Concerto Group so everyone is in check with their responsibilities in order to achieve a successful install in a challenging space.

Premises Licence

To ensure that licensable activities can take place at our events, we need to apply for a premises licence. This requires lots of involvement with Hounslow Council to make sure our application is successful and meets the requirements of our clients. As required, we always publish a newspaper article spreading the exciting news of the install via the council. We also put up notices so neighbours are aware of the install and events. We cover every angle to ensure all parties are happy.

Day 2Syon House

We have a fantastic close working relationship with Syon House. This involved constant communication with regards to the premises licence, plans of the marquee, the grounds and any issues we may have required their assistance with to achieve a successful install. We also work closely on events where couples can have their ceremony at Syon House and then enjoy the reception celebrations at the Garden Room.

Day 4


With our preferred suppliers we worked on exciting new plans to improve the layout of the marquee this year so tailoring the spaces for new and modern designs. We worked to a schedule so we knew who was due on site at what time. All our suppliers knew the times they were required to install their services and everything ran smoothly through the Install.


Building Week

The build started on Monday 18th April which was planned to take 2 weeks. Our first event this year was booked for Sunday 1st May. We ensure that when the suppliers are onsite, that there is a site manager/contact onside representing ‘Concerto Group.’ If there are purchasing items or orders to be delivered we will always ensure it arrives on time before the first event is due for the summer.

Here are some key stats from the Garden Room at Syon install this year:

  • In total 1,820 man hours were required for the build
  • 14 Chandeliers were installed
  • 13 days to complete the install
  • 90 different styles and amounts of lighting all added together
  • A lot of decking to create the perfect outdoor areas to step out and see Syon House and the private gardens, as well as a pathway leading to the marquee
  • There are Luxury toilets as well as a private changing room for brides or guest speakers
  • A separate 10m x 11m dance floor area – that’s a big party!

Day 3

Health and Safety

Health and safety is key for us when installing the marquee and it’s very important from the start of the planning process to the last supplier leaving site when the marquee is dismantled. As part of the planning process we reviewed the correct number of fire exits for the venue and the capacity. During the install we undertook the task of ensuring that adequate signage is in place, the fire extinguishers are distributed throughout the venue and the emergency lighting works.  Prior to the first event, an inspection is undertaken by our Health and Safety Consultants to make sure the venue is safe for our clients and guests.

Marquee no walkway side


As part of our install, we work with Syon House to set the speaker levels. This includes taking sound level readings at key points inside the venue and outside to make sure guests have a great experience but that we do not impact on our neighbours.



We have a kitchen within the marquee with high health, safety and food standards. Our award-winning catering company Create are our main caterers of the venue; however we also have an excellent choice of recommended local caterers depending on our client’s food requirements.

With capacity for 600 guests for a seated dinner or a reception for up to 800 guests, you are not short of space. The reception space and dining area are partitioned off so a big reveal for your guests can be created. The dance floor can also be unveiled as the night’s celebrations continue.

Attention to detail is key to the marquee build of the Garden Room at Syon. The end result is a dynamic and flexible event space that is perfect for both corporate and private events. Make the most of the British summer with access to 5 acres of private land and a stunning blank-canvas event space, all within London.
