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.


Happy anniversary us

To the sound of a single party popper, the hurried scoffing of a jam doughnut and cries of ‘get back to work!’ we’re celebrating our anniversary.

Although I’d written about marquees in a few other places previously it was 5 years ago that we decided to put everything in one place and add this blog to our website. It was hoped that amongst all of the marquee drivel that spouted forth people may sieve their own nugget of useful information. It has generally proved very successful and as a result of this and our other advice there are now hundreds more members of the marquee hire community.

30 years ago my parents (the ‘C’ and ‘D’) decided they had best formalise the business they’d been running for the last few years in to a limited company before it grew completely out of control. To give you an idea of my status at this point I knew the ‘D’ stood for Dad but couldn’t work out what the ‘C’ stood for..

Thank you to all of our customers over that time, thank you to all of the staff we’ve had the pleasure of working alongside and especially thank you to the ladies who have been with us throughout the life of the business. These are the ladies who were in charge of me as a kid but who (technically if not practically) I’m in charge of now in one of those strange relationships you get in a second generation family business.

As always thank you for reading, my suggested solution to the previous post will be next week at which point normal service will be resumed.

Spencer
