The Meridian Marquee is another practical way we can help community groups, schools and other non-profits wanting to host and organise events for their local communities. We don’t charge for use of the marquee, it is one of the many ways in which we give back to the communities we are part of.

The marquee is 6x12m and accommodates a maximum of 60-70 people. To apply for use of our marquee at your upcoming community event, please fill out the form below.

We’ll review your request and let you know if we are able to provide our marquee for your event.  If your request is approved, we’ll cover the cost of, and arrange, the transport, set-up, take down and return of the marquee.

The Meridian Marquees are available to our communities across our South Island Asset areas which include the Waitaki hydro generation scheme, White Hill Wind farm and the Manapōuri hydro generation scheme.
