Festivals in the UK have a huge following and at Purvis Marquee Hire we can provide everything you need.

With 27,000 square metres of marquees in our stock, even the largest of festivals is not daunting.

Our Management Team have many years experience servicing and supporting the live music industry, allowing us to hit the ground running, easily supporting you through every stage of your event.

If you are a promoter, a marketer or caterer involved in either all, or small part, of the event, we can help support your festival project. Merchandising marquees, JAC – operations tents, production villages, bars, BOS – back of stage / green room / VIP, retail village, hospitality, we have the experience of delivering it all.

Organising complex sites typical of a music festival might be a daunting task for some; we thrive on the pressure this brings and with our attention to detail and meticulous planning process and protocols, nothing gets left to chance.

We have worked with some of the biggest artists and on many prestigious events and festivals.

  • Elton John,
  • The Rolling Stones,
  • Wickerman Festival,
  • Rockness,
  • The Tartan Heart Festival, and many more.

With our many connections in the industry, we provide much more than the marquees for your event; we are able to organise everything you need, ensuring you can relax and watch it all happen.

Distance is not an issue either; we will travel anywhere: Scotland, the UK and internationally. We are just as happy on site and in the thick of it as we are in the Project Management tent.

We value our reputation in festivals, concerts and events, and with a small hands-on Management Team you will have the assurance there will be an experienced manager on site. They will coordinate your event infrastructure and get stuck in with the site crews.

CASE STUDY

MONTPELIERS, HOPSCOTCH BAR, EDINBURGH FRINGE

Situation

Montpelier were planning to draw more of the Fringe Festival down to the west end of George Street by providing people with an eye-catching and unique music venue, bar and whisky experience.

Task

Purvis Marquees were approached due to their experience working in Edinburgh’s city centre and the unique range of specialist structures that they can provide. They were asked to come up with a venue setup that would stand out from a distance and attract people to George Street.

Action

The planned design was based around a 10m x 20m frame on a suspended floor with a large peak in the roof. Fully glazed all round with internal roof linings. Outside there was an extended outdoors raised seating area with a covered performance canopy. AstroTurf was laid on the surfaces with joiners fitting out ramp and step access along with bespoke internal fit out of bar and experience sections.

Result

An eye-catching bespoke venue that stood out from everything else on George Street and provided a lively venue during the day and especially in the evenings.

Essential Edinburgh manage the Edinburgh New Town city centre Business Improvement District. The area covered stretches from Charlotte Square to the new St. James Centre.

READ THE FULL STORY...

Montpelier wanted to draw more of the Fringe Festival to the west end of Edinburgh’s George Street by providing people with an eye-catching and unique music venue, bar and whisky experience.

Through a partnership with Essential Edinburgh, Purvis Marquees were approached due to their experience working on previous events in George Street and the unique range of specialist structures that they are able to provide. The task was to come up with a venue setup that would stand out from a distance and attract people from further down George Street during the Fringe Festival allowing the local businesses to benefit from this world-renowned international festival.

The design was based around a 10m x 20m frame on a suspended floor with a large peaked roof. The marquee was fully glazed with internal roof linings. Outside there was a raised outdoor seating and dance area with a covered performance canopy where people could watch live bands and soak up the atmosphere. AstroTurf was laid inside and out with joiners fitting ramp and step access along with a bespoke internal fit out of the bar and experience sections.

A complicated build was carried out on this busy city centre street involving multiple contractors coordinating with each other throughout the build. It was all worth it with a unique venue and experience for thousands of tourist and festival goers throughout the month of August.

Additional finishes, canopies and outside seating areas were added as the client reacted to the demands of weather and his guests.

Also included within this area was a vintage cinema and a whisky experience telling the story of our famous Scottish drink.
