Andrews Marquees at the Greenwich Comedy Garden


The Magners Greenwich Comedy Festival 2015 took place in London from the 16th to the 20th of September this year and Andrews Marquees were there to help. We supplied and erected marquees of various sizes, providing performance spaces for some of the UK comedy circuit’s biggest stars, including Reginald D Hunter, Mark Watson and David O’Doherty. We also gave a home to various bars and food stalls, helping to keep everyone well refreshed throughout the festival!

For the second year in a row the festival took place in the grounds of the stunning National Maritime Museum. The elegant setting was perfectly complimented by our high-end marquees fitted with blackout curtains, with the wide range of food and drink on offer helping to create the perfect atmosphere for a week of non-stop laughs.

The festival saw performances from household name comedians such as Omid Djalili, Stephen K Amos and Ed Byrne as well as critically-acclaimed acts including Richard Herring, Bridget Christie and Jerry Sadowitz. There was also live music and entertainment between shows courtesy of event sponsors Magners.

This was Andrews Marquees second year working on the festival in partnership with GC Festivals with whom we work on a number of festivals throughout the year. Our experience and top quality marquees, furniture and accessories along with our excellent customer service mean we are always in demand for festivals of this kind, which is great because we absolutely love doing them!

We will be providing marquees of various sizes, giving some of the biggest names from the UK comedy scene the perfect venues in which to perform, as well as providing spaces for bars and food stalls.

Now in its sixth year, the comedy festival has moved to a new home at the beautiful National Maritime Museum. Our top end marquees perfectly compliment such a grand and historic setting, helping to simply and effectively create both a first class performance area and ideal food and drink venues.

The festival will play host to some of the most successful and exciting comedians around, including Stewart Lee, Josie Long, David O’Doherty, Phill Jupitus, Milton Jones, Rich Hall, Ardal O’Hanlon, Nina Conti and many, many more. The acts will be spread over the Big Top and Little Top, the latter of which has been supplied by Andrews Marquees, fully fitted with blackout curtains to provide the perfect setting for live comedy.

There will also be live music from the bandstand, several bars and a whole range of gourmet food vendors, several of them operating out of our marquees, all coming together to create the perfect atmosphere for a comedy event like no other. There will also be extra entertainment between shows, courtesy of the team at Magners sponsoring the event.
