The History of Burgoynes Marquees

Burgoynes was established by William Henry Burgoyne in 1909 as a means to keep his six sons occupied and in work. Nowadays W.H. Burgoyne would be called an entrepreneur, as he began the business which has gone on to provide marquees all over England and Wales. He also established a transport company, bought water to the village of Lyonshall, created warehouse space and serviced many a vehicle in its workshop.

William Henry Burgoyne’s eldest son Robert, great Grandfather to current directors Jim and Matt Burgoyne, grew the marquee hire company after having slept under canvas in the First World War.
The Marquee business grew steadily and in 1925 we supplied the canvas for the Welsh Boy Scouts Jamboree at Glanusk Park. We received a thank you note from King George V for our services.

Robert’s son Reg along with Peter Burgoyne proceeded to take the marquee business forward. Their reputation for supplying marquees all over England and Wales grew as a result of winning contracts such as the Open Golf Championships and the Formula 1 at Silverstone.

Jim and Matts father, David, was a hugely influencing factor in the successful running of the marquee business. He instilled the passion and motivation for the latest generation of Burgoynes to come through and take the business forward.

“Burgoynes Marquees is now looking to make the next 100 years even more successful than the last. We are excited about taking strides forward within the market and helping all of our customers receive the best possible service to ensure their event is as special as they hoped it would be.”

Jim Burgoyne, Managing Director
