The Flagship Events Company is a premium hire company established by brothers in-law Patch Reynolds and Ted Thorp. With bases in Hawkes Bay, Central Otago and soon to be Auckland, Flagship provides high quality event hire nationwide. Flagship Events and Flock Events work closely together to bring you all event hire and services.

Flagship has a passion for stylish, sophisticated weddings and events. This is one of the many reasons why we have teamed up with the amazing craftsmen at Sperry Tents from Massachusetts USA. Our shared philosophy and attention to detail resulted in us gaining the exclusive rights to the iconic Sperry tents in New Zealand.



The Carolina

COMING OCT/NOV ‘19 (See technical info)

The Carolina is our smallest tent but don’t let that fool you in terms of size. Its centre pole reaches to a height of nearly 6 meters and the canopy stretches across a diameter of 10 meters to the side poles standing at 2.3 meters in height. The high ceiling and tall side poles give you a wonderful sense of space that doesn’t feel cramped or confining, also provides great sight lines for the surrounding views. 


Great for small intimate weddings, private parties, and cocktail functions



The Boston Round

Available (See Technical Info)

The Boston Round is a very popular tent for anything from an afternoon garden party to a spectacular corporate event to an intimate wedding.

Its soaring canopy makes it feel like it is higher than it is wide. Being within the perimeter of its beautiful Spruce timber outer poles gives you a feeling of being cocooned inside a very special place anticipating a very special event. It comes with a complete set of side walls that can be zipped shut or rolled up out of view.


Great for intimate weddings, private parties, cocktail functions, trade events, and more



The Manhattan

Available (See Technical Info)

The Manhattan tent displays harmonious symmetry from the outset with two seven metre wooden spruce poles that stretch the ivory canopy and its seams effortlessly from one to the other. The circular ends of this tent create an oyster shaped interior which is the perfect space to host a medium sized wedding or event. It comes with a complete set of sidewalls that can be zipped shut or rolled up.


Great for weddings, private parties, cocktail functions, dance parties, car/boat launches, and more



The Cape Cod

Available (See Technical Info)

The three long flags fluttering from the exterior tips of the Cape Cod, suggest for miles around, that something special is about to happen beneath that canopy. The Cape Cod is beautifully balanced and proportioned combining the elegance of the Gatsby era with a classic simplicity that requires the simplest of finishing touches to create an unforgettable event.

Just three spectacular Spruce timber centre poles are all the support the Cape Cod requires on the inside creating a beautiful voluminous space that allows for infinite layout and design options with great sightlines. The tent comes with a complete set of sidewalls that can be zipped shut or rolled up.


Great for large weddings, private parties, dance parties, large catered speaking events, and more



The Long Island

COMING OCT/NOV ‘19 (see Technical Info)

The Long Island is the largest in the Flagship fleet. It has five centre poles and stretches across 38 meters in length. This tent is big enough to cater to large corporate events and wedding numbers in excess of 250 guests while still allowing room for a dancefloor, lounge and bar area if required. This utterly impressive tent has all the exquisite detailing unique to the Sperry tent just on a much grander scale.


Great for large weddings, large corporate events, festivals, large private parties and more
