Barkers Marquees started life in the early 1900s at Epsom Races. Charles Fredrick Barker erected beer and tea tents to house his catering company’s light refreshments. Soon the Marquees Hire business took over from catering. By 1950s, C F Barkers and Sons were one of London’s leading Marquee Hire Businesses.

Barkers are still going to this day and flying the flag for manufacture still in good ole Blighty!
