The English Marquee Company is a family owned and operated Specialist Events company based in Harrogate. With over 100 years combined experience in the Events and Leisure business, we work hand in hand with our clients to blend classic Marquees with beautiful furniture to create timeless events.
Established in 1995 our parent company has been delivering excellence in the Hospitality and Leisure fields from our base near Harrogate in the heart of Yorkshire to clients throughout the UK, Europe and North America.
In recent years, Tor and Sam Peters have joined the business bringing with them a wealth of experience to take the company forward, embracing new ideas alongside time honoured techniques.
Tor has a proven track record in the Events business with a degree in Event Management. This includes several years’ experience in high end catering in the Harrogate area, followed by a successful career working in outside events across the UK for HiHo Jewellery, Chalet operations for luxury Ski Companies in Courchevel as well as working for Fortnum and Masons in London. Tor leads our Event Planning and Sales Team.
Sam is a graduate of the Royal Agricultural University. With 10 years’ experience in Events and Agricultural construction Sam oversees all aspects of the English Marquee Company. Sam also leads our operational team as well as sourcing the best products available for our clients, from tables and chairs to flooring, lighting and Marquees.
In creating the Finest English Marquee Company we looked at suppliers from all over the UK. Many were relatively recent entries into the business but one company stood out above all others in terms of quality with over 100 years’ experience in designing and creating hand crafted Marquees.
Using a mix of canvas and breathable textured membranes our Marquees are industry leading to provide the perfect shade on hot Summer days as well as wind resistance of up to 80 mph to ensure that everything goes well no matter what the weather.
Working with our manufacturer, we have created a range of Marquees which are ideal for all styles and size of event, each one reflecting our joint Heritage as the original English Marquee Company.
Our ethos is simple: “To exceed the expectations of our Clients, our Suppliers and our Staff”
With the English Marquee Company the fun and expertise starts at the planning stage. From the moment you contact us we endeavour to make your event planning experience as enjoyable as possible. Our attention to detail will ensure that the Marquees will provide the perfect backdrop to your special occasion. We are passionate about our Marquees and dedicated to providing first class service and creative events to suit all budgets.
