THE BOOK OF TENTS TRILOGY

Outdoor Events form a part of the publics leisure time that is growing, both in terms of the amount of time spent at major events like the British Grand Prix, or the Open Golf, and in economic terms, as there is a vast industry which services these events, contributing large sums to the nations economy.


This industry forms a unique part of the leisure world, being mostly service based, but encompassing many other sides of business. From catering to computers, from low tech to high tech, there is such variety that generally an outsider could not comprehend the total scope without some difficulty.

This book makes a brave attempt to clarify some of the issues relating to the use of structures in the event world with emphasis on health and safety and regulations and a dose of real world common sense thrown in.
