Purvis Marquee Hire supply temporary structures AND EVENT SERVICES throughout Scotland and the UK

Purvis Marquee Hire supply marquees and event finishes for corporate events, festivals, agriculture and game shows to weddings across the UK and the EU. We are a family business based in Edinburgh, and have a passion for temporary and semi-permanent structures and all types of events. Our staff have over 160 years combined experience installing marquees.

Within the event industry in Scotland Purvis have become the standard of excellence for marquees. Although we specialise in the provision of marquee hire, we also provide both infrastructure and event management.

Our Royal Warrant is very important to us and we received this through excellence, dedication and attention to detail; so this is the same service you can expect for your event and organisation.

The dedicated team of event specialists at Purvis have extensive experience working throughout the event industry on contracts large and small. This means that all events can be catered for, from large corporate occasions to trade shows and sporting events, often with client brand activation, and because of this we have become adept at providing bespoke structures.

Essentially Purvis provide marquees for hire and for sale, so aside from manufacturing marquees we also provide event management, event infrastructure, event layout design and event finishes for a large cross-section of shows and occasions.

“Because we have a family first attitude each project we become involved in becomes a personal mission to be the best it can be. We genuinely love what we do and feel very fortunate to be in a business we enjoy and are very good at.” John Brown, General Manager.


As a small family business our foundation is built on our values, which distinguish us and guide our actions. We run our business in a socially responsible and ethical manner. We respect the law, support human rights, protect the environment, and give back to the community.
