ABOUT US


“I was the most involved with the crew that put up and took down the marquee…I could not fault them. Always cool calm and collected. To get the construction down and cleared away before 11am on Sunday was a great achievement.”

The Pearl Tent Company is part of House of Hud, a multi-award winning Event Company based in West Sussex, run by Katherine Hudson who has worked at the top of the Event Industry for 15 years.

Having first encountered these stunning Moghul Tents many years ago in India – where the structures were very first manufactured – it was love at first sight! However it wasn’t until several years later that Katherine met a colleague in the Event Industry who had cleverly re-designed and manufactured these white canvas structures using a framework of German-made clear-span technology that she invested in the tents, recognising their structural superiority compared to their competitors.

This juxtaposition of Eastern style and Western practicality is the essence of the Pearl Tents success – making them the choice of the top event planners – providing the atmosphere of refined elegance to an event, safe in the knowledge that this is supported by the underlying safety of the structure.

As the Event Designer, Katherine supports each client with a consultation including a tailored tent design and is backed up by a team in the office of staff that are diligent and expert in the Pearl Tent structures have worked in the company for more than 12 years. Professional site crew who are as passionate about providing perfection in their finished product as she is and an Clients regularly describe the The Pearl Tent Company team as “polite, charming and a pleasure to have around” which is lucky as constructing a Pearl Tent takes much longer than a standard marquee with the crew on-site for a minimum of two to three days!

And for 2020 as every person, household and business is looking at ways to contribute towards the solution to climate change, we’re evolving the way we work to ensure sustainability for all of our futures.

We are proud to have introduced a carbon off-set plan, allowing clients to offset the carbon cost of transporting equipment to events, and other initiatives to allow them to off-set the travel for their guests too – enabling our clients to be part of the 2020 Eco climate solution.
