Film Location Marquees and Production Support


Barny has worked with some of the biggest media companies over the years offering an array of temporary structures for TV and film production crews. The company’s reach has extended from marquee hire in London to marquee hire in Cardiff and everywhere in between! 

Depending on the scope of the project and the personnel involved, this usually includes marquee hire for production offices, green rooms, chill-out areas, and even storage solutions for production equipment. One of our recent projects was for Rare TV, the production company behind the BBC’s Digging for Britain. In this new series, the west of Britain is explored for the best of its archaeological digs and post-excavation discoveries. In north Somerset, archaeologists are blown away by the discovery of an entirely new Roman town. The marquee that we erected became the series’ “studio” and acted as a headquarters, where the production company asked the archaeologists that they’d met over the course of the year to bring in their most exciting finds.  It was so great to see our marquees being used for such a fascinating project!
