“ Monnow Marquees provided additional site office and security structures to the main hospitality villages in Bute Park for the UEFA Champions League 2017. Their friendly, “can do” approach to tricky constraints which were imposed on us in terms of tree protection guidelines and tight budget sign-off timelines was invaluable. The quality and presentation of their structures was excellent and more than befitting such a high profile international event
