As far as I can make out from the pics, it is a ring and pin job.
Assemble the poles, two should be the same length and longer than the third pole.
Thread the two long poles diagonally through their sleeves first. With luck they are colour-coded.
Push the pin at one end of the pole for one side of the tent, walk across to the other side and do the same, and the dome will form due to the tension in the straps.
Repeat with the front pole, i.e. push the pin in one end, then the other end.
Adjust tensions in the straps, and complete guying the tent into shape.
That's how I would do it with my Vango Delta 300+ which has a porch pole at both ends, and not just one in the London 3.
