In addition to weddings, the marquee will be having further use as a function room for such events as corporate hire, parties and school activities, With Canal & River Trust stating that this will play a big part in the use of the lift in the future, as it can hold a large number of people.

All boaters requiring to use the lift in the future will need to book passage so as not to interfere with such events taking place.  (An unusual photograph of the lift covered in 'flutterfetti'—ideal for weddings!)
