Part 1 of the Showcase Guide: Introduction to the Event

As you all know, us here at Events Under Canvas should have had our annual Tipi and Sailcloth Showcase back in April earlier this year. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 our event was postponed and rescheduled.

The good news is however, we are now in September which means we only have a month to go until our rescheduled date; and as Queen once sang

“The Show Must Go On”.

Similar to previous years, the Events Under Canvas Showcase will be your go-to place for choosing your tipi, tent and canvas for your special

day, or spectacular event/party. Including other suppliers businesses for you to plan, gain inspiration or even just browse over the course of the weekend.

We’ll be pitching up at Great Gilberts Farm in Capel St. Mary which is located in between Ipswich and Colchester and very easy to access from the A12.  


So far at the 2020 Events Under Canvas Showcase, we already have some great suppliers lined up, who shall be attending the show in October.

You may recognise some of these suppliers from previous years. However, some may be new to you.

events under canvas showcase

All of us here at Events Under Canvas hope to see you at the Showcase this year. Even though it will be in the peak of Autumn, we are hoping the rain will stay away. However, with our range of stunning tents and tipis which we will have on show, there will be shelter available for you.

You will not need a ticket for both days, and you won’t have to pay. So if you are planning your wedding for either this year or next, make sure you come along to either get inspiration for your special day and event, or even book a new caterer or DJ.

To keep up with the latest updates, follow our social media channels and view our Facebook event here and let us know whether you can or can’t make it.
