About Us

Stunning marquees and the best service in the industry


Our Story

Barny Lee Marquees have been creating magical event spaces for thousands of happy customers since 2003.

We are proud that our family run business, based deep in the heart of Somerset, has grown organically through word of mouth.  Caring for our clients and always going the extra mile has been at the core of our business from day one.

Reputation is Everything

Thanks to our strong reputation and some really wonderful clients over the years, our business now extends to cover all of Southern England, Wales, the South West and London.

Somerset Roots

Our Managing Director and owner Barny Lee has lived in Wedmore, Somerset all of his life. His brother, just down the road, has a cider making business and you could say that the family are as firmly rooted in Somerset as the ancient apple orchards or Cheddar cheese.

Rely On Us

You can relax in the knowledge that we will take the stress out of planning and setting up your big day. Barny and our team of experienced marquee installers and event coordinators will help every step of the way and ensure your celebration runs like a dream.

Business Keeps Growing

Living within earshot of Glastonbury festival, Barny had searched for many years for the perfect site on the edge of the festival gates to create a boutique glamping experience. In 2017 Barny successfully opened The Retreat which was a total sell out! He is now looking forward to setting up camp again for Glastonbury 2019. We now also offer pop up glamping accommodation for marquee clients looking to provide luxury camping on site for their guests.


Our Team

We employ fully trained professional and polite staff. We are flexible to fit in with your needs and requirements and work exceedingly hard, dealing fully with any difficulties as they arise so your occasion is memorable for all the right reasons!
