We have manufactured our own marquees here at Lewis Marquees for over a hundred years, and still make them in the age old way of the original Lewis family. Our in house factory is run by master tent maker Nick Minkley who has over 40 years’ experience. Whether it be our own, bespoke traditional canvas tents or a yurt, Teepee or bell tent, it is made right here at Lewis Marquees. Nick is ably assisted by Steve Grant and Mark Edwards in preparing the guys and ropes for the tents, and by CP Sawyer who makes the wooden frames in our workshop.

Though Nick has recently become a sole trader with his business ‘Needle and Palm’ he is very much still part of the Lewis operation and will make your tent to order right here in the Lewis factory. Nick can make Boat and sail covers amongst others and is readily on hand to make any repairs to a number of different items. If you would like a bespoke tent made or are in need of repairs, call us on 01243 372242 and we will be happy to help.
