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.

A message from your mum

Apologies for the lack of writing last Monday, I’ve been away the last week and ran out of time before we left. If anyone complains about being worn out from putting up marquees try travelling all day with an 18 month old daughter!

Which actually leads me on to my advice today. Marquee erectors are renowned for living on junk food. Local kebab shops, sandwich bars and burger joints used to know our lads by name. One sandwich shop actually named our sandwich of choice the ‘cholesterol killer’ – thick white bread with bacon, chips, melted cheese & mayo. This is all well and good if you’re a teenager but when you’re the wrong side of 30 (join the club) this sort of eating can make you suffer.

If you’re coming home at night shattered just take 5 mins and run through what you’ve eaten, maybe some healthier eating could help.

Whilst I’m writing sounding like your mother I should also recommend having some sun block in your van 🙂

I’ll be back to my usual mundane stuff next week!

Thanks for reading
