We really enjoy working with local businesses to help them host their events. We recently had the pleasure of working with Finsa for their exhibition in Birkenhead Park recently. We also like the feedback we get. Here is their testimonial.


“Thank you for being so bloody awesome!!!


When I was asked to set up a public exhibition in a public park and I was in need of a marquee, Astra Marquees had been recommended by Wirral Council.

From the first phone call with Ray to sitting down him and telling him what I needed to achieve, right through to delivering on the day and to the dismantling on the close – Astra Marquees have been fabulous.


I relied on Ray’s experience and knowledge to ensure I had the right sized marquee, to have it adequately heated and for it to be comfortable enough for 120 people. He did all this and more.

Weather was against us, and threw up challenges with our catering option (to have food prepared off site and transported in) and ay stepped in to help last minute. With a few minor adjustments he had created a portioned area for our cater who was delighted. We even had a transport issue with our exhibition (our truck broke down) and Ray and his team stepped in to help transport our awkwardly shaped exhibition frames on and off site. Nothing proved to be a problem for him.


Of all the things I worried about over this exhibition – it was not the marquee, nor the heating, nor the weather – because I had Ray on my side.

Thanks to Astra Marquees for helping deliver a successful exhibition and a very successful symposium. We had 120 very happy delegates who thoroughly enjoyed the day.


Thanks for the moral support, the advice and the help.


Until next time,
