When Richard III's body was found in Leicester City Centre, it was decided to have a burial event which involved his body being taken to Bosworth Battlefield where he died. We were approached by Leicestershire County Council to provide marquee structures and facilities at Bosworth battlefield centre. A main marquee was required for 2,000 seated which was a 15m wide x 45m length with total clear sides all along one length and also and a VIP area which was a 12m x 12m structure again with total clear walling and a total clear gable end. We also supplied a generator and power distribution and furnitre. The marquee also had a hard wooden floor throughout with charcoal carpet covering.

We have been asked by various schools and colleges for extra space on the playgrounds to help with keeping separate year bubbles apart at playtime when schools reopen to all year groups in September. This is on a playground at a school in Birmingham.

On July 12th 2019 we celebrated the Centenary of the founding of the Old Northamptonians. We wanted to go for a high-quality experience across the board in marquee, food, entertainment and all the extra bits that go into making a great night. We started working with Andrew from D and D back in October 2018 and the very first thing that struck me was he was a very honest, genuine guy who wanted to match our high-quality aims

Thank you to the D&D team for putting up such a wonderful marquee for our wedding day at Hinwick House. From the start, Andrew was very responsive to all of our questions and provided us with his fair and honest opinions throughout. We had asked for quotes from several suppliers but ultimately went with D&D because of our interactions with Andrew. Overall, we couldn't be happier with the large role that D&D played in making our wedding day truly special and memorable and for being so reliable throughout.

We were approached by a couple to provide a marquee and equipment for their upcoming wedding reception. The couple had exclusive use of a local private stately home and beautiful grounds. A site survey was arranged and the best position and layout of the marquee was decided. The couple wanted to make the most of the views of the grounds and across to the lake, so a clear gable end and clear roofs over the reception area with total clear windows down one side to get as much as the views as possible was agreed.
