For the eighth year, Undercover Event Tents are delighted to be able to offer sponsorship to The Dittons Fair by supplying and erecting all of the marquees run by The Dittons Scout Group.  As always, we hope the shelter we offer is to give shade from the sun rather than from inclement weather! 

Undercover is a Thames Ditton based company under the personal supervision of father and son team, Terry and Dan Griffin.  Both have a long association with The Dittons as active members and latterly as supporters of the group.  We offer a range of marquee solutions to suit a wide range of events tailored to suit you.  Whether you require a plain event tent or a luxuriously lined and illuminated marquee, we can fulfil your needs and even create layouts to maximise the shape of your garden.  We don't stop there; we can finish off the effect with various floorings, from carpet to a solid dance floor and even supply the tables, chairs and finishing touches to leave you ready to go.

With our experience and flexible range of marquees we are able to offer a comprehensive package to suit most entertainment requirements.  One phone call or email and Terry will arrange a no obligation site visit and help start you on your way to that special event of your dreams.
