A Short Bit About me

I'm Spencer King, an ex-marquee erector. This blog is designed to help those running a hire business or thinking of starting. I don't claim to know everything, I'm just trying to help people avoid the mistakes I made! Check out our event planning section for advice on planning your own marquee event. Please contact us if we can help or offer advice in any way.


For those who aren’t aware we launched a forum for the marquee industry last week. It seems to be going very well with some very interesting ideas and healthy debates. A word of warning – I will unashamedly be using this for topics to discuss on here occasionally, if I see something I think would be useful to our customers then I’ll write about it on here.

We had an unusual thing recently, someone came in and bought a pagoda marquee (not that unusual), he then asked what time we were open on Monday to return it. He thought he was just hiring it! I felt bad. Obviously I offered him his money back if he didn’t want it (he actually seemed quite happy to be fair) but I also felt bad I’ve pinched a potential customer from a poor hirer out there. Still, our prices must be pretty reasonable for that to happen in the first place 🙂

Look at that, 9 days to go and I nearly managed to get to the end without mentioning The Showman’s Show next week! We’re still working on the samples so I can’t confirm what we’ll have there yet. Things that we won’t be showing but we are supplying next year are full height partitions so you can split a marquee internally (ideal for creating catering areas etc) as well as increasing our 4m wide range to include 4x6m and 4x12m as the 4x8m & 4x10m were so popular this year we could barely hold stock of them.

As always thanks for reading, please pop along to the forum and have a read.

Spencer.
