James Marquee Hire is a long established family business that has developed over the last thirty years into a highly respected wedding and event specialist. From our roots in Horam, near Heathfield, steady expansion took us to Five Ashes, Wadhurst and on to our current base in Hellingly, north of Eastbourne. Our client base has generally been East Sussex, West Sussex and Kent, although the last few years have seen this expand to Surrey and South London.

From our origins as one of the first companies in the south east to use modern clear span structures, we now stock marquees, luxury toilets, generators and all other ancillary event equipment and are leaders in our field.

Our clear span marquees have an attractive appearance, all white exterior and optional Georgian style window panels, with a versatile design in a wide range of sizes. With no centre poles our marquees can be built on hard or soft surfaces and can be erected directly adjacent to existing buildings. We stock a wide range of interiors to suit all budgets with options on lining, flooring, lighting, furniture, dance floors etc.

We pride ourselves on offering a personal service and strive to make your event stress free. From initial contact and site visit through to the big day, our team will make sure your day is one to remember. Company Directors Mark Procter and his wife Jo, along with their experienced team in the office and on the ground, are there to make your event a success.
