Universal Marquees was established in 2006 and is already one of the best known and most respected marquee hire companies in the South West. We are based in Somerset with offices just outside Taunton, Somerset meaning we are perfectly placed to work across the West Country. We have hired out marquees from Cornwall, Devon to Dorset and work in Bath and Bristol,  Exeter and Plymouth. We are local and have an excellent working knowledge of all of the main South West venues and although we are always delighted to work in new locations we think we know most of them.

Universal Marquees is a family run business offering a range of marquee styles and sizes. In addition to our large stock of frame marquees we also have stretch tents and oriental style pagodas. To help you hold the perfect event we carry a significant stock of furniture and marquee equipment making the whole process a very straight-forward one.
