Hi. We are Duwayne & Elise Langley, Jabula Tents team!! We both come from South Africa but have been living here in Cornwall, St Ives since 2003 and love it here.
Besides providing stretch tents for events, Duwayne is a qualified electrician and we are both very involved in local community activities. We have set up and help run the St Ives Community Orchard and occasionally put up stretch tents for community / charity events like our local schools carnival, the St Ives surf club Movember event and the local surf competitions.
We have 3 children, love camping, surfing, exploring Cornwall and going to music festivals. We so enjoy hiring out stretch tents as it allows us to get involved with some amazing events and see some incredible places.
"We are committed to providing an efficient, professional service, to do our best to find a solution and to providing a beautiful and strong structure. We are friendly, helpful, punctual & reliable & will go all out to helping you create an unforgettable event. Jabula means 'happy' in Zulu & we hope to convey 'Jabulani' happiness to all those who party in our tents."
We have a great team of people who help us put up the tents, here's a few photos of us in action.
Here's a fun video of us putting up a stretch tent in our first year of business in 2015. Filmed by our good friend Senara from 'On the Beach Productions'. We are far more professional now but this is a great momento.
See our blog of some of the events we've been lucky enough to be part of.
