Not only did the site teams pull this off flawlessly but they managed to make life as easy as possible for the various event managers involved assisting with the coordination of these high profile locations.

Pope Benedict XVI visited England and Scotland on a four-day Papal visit from 16-19 September 2010. The Holy Father flew firstly to Scotland where he was received by Her Majesty The Queen. Later he celebrated a public Mass at Bellahouston Park in Glasgow. In England, amongst other things, His Holiness made a speech to British civil society at Westminster Hall, met with the leaders of other Christian traditions, took part in a service of Evening Prayer with the Archbishop of Canterbury, led a prayer vigil, met with leaders and people of other faiths and beatified the nineteenth century theologian and educationalist Blessed John Henry Newman.

READ THE FULL STORY...

Pope Benedict XVI was to visit the United Kingdom on a historic four-day Papal Visit from in September 2010. With such a significant figure planning to meet with the people of our country large amounts of infrastructure was required to be in place and be of the highest standard. 

The first stop on his historic Papal Visit to the United Kingdom was the Palace of Holyroodhouse where he was greeted by HRH Queen Elizabeth II at her official residence in Scotland. Having enjoyed the official State welcome, Pope Benedict then traveled through Edinburgh in the Popemobile with thousands of passionate Scots lining the streets. Late afternoon and a move across to Glasgow saw the celebration of Mass with a crowd of over 70,000 in the city’s Bellahouston Park.

With Purvis Marquees long-standing presence working for the Royal Household our company was in the top position to be an integral part of making this event successful. We were tasked with servicing three key locations, Edinburgh Airport, The Palace of Holyroodhouse and Bellahouston Park in Glasgow with a range of event structures and infrastructure.

Careful planning and logistics were implemented to ensure each venue location was serviced to the highest standards and to strict schedules. Not only did the site teams pull this off flawlessly, they managed to make life as easy as possible for the event managers involved, assisting with the coordination at the high profile locations. 

Each location chosen for this event had a long history of Purvis Marquees previously working on it. Taking great care of grounds and staff is something that we have always prided ourselves on and this is reflected by our work on site. Each venue was left with a location looking in the same condition it was before the event. you would never know our marquees had ever been there.

Everything ran like clockwork and our client was thankful that our team were there to make it all happen. The Purvis Marquees team were hugely proud and felt very privileged to have had the honour to work on such a historic event.

CLIENT FEEDBACK

We remain very grateful to you for the remarkable job you and your team delivered in the face of appalling weather conditions in erecting us such a splendid marquee at Edinburgh airport for the Pope’s arrival. It was first rate, exactly what was required and it was a real pleasure to work with you on this historic project.

Thank you,

Best wishes
