The world of food and drink events—a vibrant tapestry of tastes, sights, and sounds, where people come together to celebrate, discover, and indulge. At Purvis Marquee Hire, we’ve seen a lot, done a considerable amount and yes, we have quite a few stories to tell. From launching new products that set the culinary world abuzz to curating bespoke festivals that become the talk of the town, we’ve been the invisible force that brings visions to life.

What sets us apart?

For one, our Management Team is not just skilled but also extraordinarily adaptable. I recall working on an elaborate design for The Ritz, only to pivot midway when they decided to add a “Roaring Twenties” theme to the event. We didn’t bat an eye. Our team incorporated Art Deco elements seamlessly, transforming a mere event into a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Similarly, when McEwans wanted to launch a new line of craft beers, they reached out to us. We understood that a simple, run-of-the-mill setup wouldn’t cut it. We were not just setting up tents; we were creating an atmosphere. Vintage bar counters, ambient lighting, and strategically placed marquees later, McEwans had a launch that people reminisced about for months.

And let’s not forget our collaborations with giants like Diageo and Wetherspoons. These weren’t just events; they were spectacles. The kind of occasions that people mark on their calendars, prepare for, and talk about long after they’ve happened. You could feel the energy shift when you stepped into one of these venues. That’s the Purvis difference—a meticulous attention to detail that transforms any event into an unforgettable experience.

Our expertise isn’t limited to brands alone. We’ve cultivated long-standing relationships with venues and catering companies like Hickory, Heritage Portfolio, Glasshouse Events, and Hopetoun House. These partnerships allow us to bring an extra layer of polish to our work, ensuring that each event isn’t just good, but exceptional.

We don’t just provide marquees; we offer a complete package. Need catering services? We’ve got you covered. Looking for an experienced Project Manager? Look no further. From lighting to furniture, our extensive in-house stock and industry connections mean we can handle all aspects of your event, giving you the peace of mind to focus on what’s important—making lasting memories.


Not an issue. Whether you’re in Scotland, or anywhere else in the UK, or even internationally, we’re more than happy to come to you. Our hands-on Management Team ensures that from day one, you’ll have an experienced manager on-site, coordinating your event infrastructure while also getting their hands dirty with the crew. That’s how committed we are to your success.

Our approach has always been simple: operate a friendly and efficient service that helps our clients succeed. And succeed they have, time and time again. So, if you’re a brand, a bar, a catering supplier, a venue, a restaurant, or an entrepreneur looking to make your mark in the food and drink industry, remember—Purvis Marquee Hire is your partner in crafting unforgettable experiences. And we’re already looking forward to being part of your next big event.
