Thatching for Theme Parks and Attractions

Theme parks and Visitor Attractions

Ensuring your visitor attraction is still attractive.

Fenland Leisure - the play professionals, were renovating a slightly tired play area at one of the UK's leading visitor attractions. After restoring the soft flooring, replacing the timber and glossing the paint, they needed someone to replace the leaky old thatch roofs. 

From the start we provided tips, advice and thatch samples. We asked searching questions about space for access equipment or the requirement for fire retarding materials. Along with multiple site visits to assess the best and safest method of working around the attraction, whilst it always remained open to the public.


Natural and synthetic thatch tiles with up to 20 years life span. 

Working from spider lifts our team stripped off the old thatch and removed it from site. We cleaned, repaired or replaced the roof structures. A semi synthetic thatch tile was chosen to lengthen the cosmetic life of the new thatch.

The entire project was finished on time and to the clients exacting standards.

Other Case Studies


Thatched Film and TV Sets

Thatched architecture provides a portal into history and tradition for the viewer. Shaggy, handmade  thatch tells of Iron age round houses, hovels or Viking long houses. Shapely smooth curves, tightly clipped gables, and smart ridges are merchant’s houses or an imperial temple. Thatch offers action prompts too - As the battle rages, thatch burns really, really well !  We have helped many film and TV production weave stories with thatch.

Thatching For Pop-Up Events

Shakespeare's Rose Theatre productions were creating two incredible pop-up, full size replica Shakespeare's Globe Theatre. One in the shadow of Clifford's Tower, in York, and another in the gardens of Blenheim Palace. Thatch was vital to lend an air of medieval authenticity to their concessions village.

The Chelsea Flower Show

A thatched cottage is an excellent centrepiece to theme a show garden around. We bring our film industry know-how to construct the complete buildings in a modular form. We have been involved in five Chelsea gardens and the inaugural Singapore garden show, with the gardens winning Gold, ‘Best in Show’ & ‘People's Choice’.
