Trafalgar and JF Marquees is an award-winning, full-service marquee and event management company, founded by James Morris in 2007.
Like all great entrepreneurial ideas, JF began on the back of a beer mat, eventually building into one of the largest businesses of its kind in London and south-west England.
Part of this growth includes the merging with Trafalgar Marquees, founded by Stephen Shiner, who, as the current Operations Director, is the man behind the day-to-day runnings. Indeed, the joint venture has diversified the event company’s capabilities in size, scope and service.
This was just the first of two additional acquisitions, with Morris and Shiner, who have sites in Cobham, Surrey, and Petworth, West Sussex, adding event furniture and the website marqueehire.co.uk to their holdings.
When it comes to their clients, the duo believes in some good old-fashioned values:
Our 27-strong team love to chat through creative ideas. We don’t want you to look back on your event as ‘just another marquee occasion’ but rather a marvellous and memorable experience.
We strive to meet the whims and fancies of our clients and their guests – from cuisine and decor, to flooring and lighting.
We know people. After nine years of working in the ‘pop up trade’, we’ve got friends in catering, entertainment and washroom hire who can complete any celebration, corporate bash or conference with a flourish (yes, we know florists, too).
Our clients’ reviews attest to our quality work as we believe in a personal service for everyone, from grandees and graduates to the betrothed and big business.
