George Mudford and Sons Ltd has been manufacturing high quality tents and marquees for over 175 years. But for 2010 we’ve gone even further back - to medieval times - with the introduction of our range of ‘Heritage Tents’.
Round marquees, called Pavilions, were common in the days of the English longbowmen. The Pavilions were often decorated with woven, striped cloth, embroidery and applied motifs; and from the Field of the Cloth of Gold (where Henry VIII met Francis I of France) to Agincourt and Bosworth, these tents provided varied and colourful camp scenes.
The Heritage medieval tent range is ideal for historical re-enactments, events and shows, period television or to add that special touch to your garden party or barbecue.
Heritage tents are manufactured from high quality 14oz flame retardant† cotton duck canvas which is both water and dry rot resistant. All ropes are natural in colour or have a traditional fibre appearance. All poles and spokes are manufactured from top quality varnished timber and pegs are chunky hand cleft ash for strength.
Handmade historic medieval tents...bringing the past to life and life to every occasion.
