A Tent is a shelter consisting of sheets of fabric or other materials draped or attached over frames of poles. Wizarding tents are charmed to be larger inside than they look from the outside, somewhat resembling small homes with beds, chairs, tables, and a kitchen. At the 1994 Quidditch World Cup, all the fans camped out in tents. Many of them were equipped with showing-off magical details, despite the official instructions to keep the camp site as Muggle-like as possible. For example, one tent was an extravagant silk palace surrounded by live peacocks. In other cases, the wizards had attempted to keep their tents mostly Muggle-like, but had slipped up by adding things like chimneys or bellpulls. Arthur Weasley had borrowed tents for the occasion from his office colleague at the ministry, Perkins, who was unable to go camping any more due to his lumbago. Harry Potter, Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley also used Perkins' tent while searching for Horcruxes.
