GL events UK has acquired fellow events infrastructure provider Field and Lawn, with GL events UK assuming 100% ownership of the company.

Field and Lawn has operations across the UK including hubs in Broxburn near Edinburgh, Bristol and Runcorn. The company was founded in 1986 and provides event marquees, temporary industrial buildings, placemaking services and festive lighting.

The company is currently working on placemaking projects ahead of next month’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations in the UK, while its festive lighting division caters for a number of festive events and light collections including the West End of London and Edinburgh.

Field and Lawn will continue to operate as a separate business and brand, but will be supported by the GL events UK senior management team.

“We are excited to welcome Field and Lawn into the GL events Group and look forward to working with Nick Radcliffe and his team to take the business from strength to strength,” said Scott Jameson, chief executive of GL events UK.

“While temporary structures, both for events and the industrial market, are very familiar territory for GL events, we are pleased to further diversify and grow our UK offering through placemaking and festive lighting divisions, building on what is already an extremely solid business.”

Field and Lawn managing director Nick Radcliffe added: “Joining the GL events Group is a hugely positive step for Field and Lawn, and we are enthusiastically embracing the opportunity to develop the business with the support and experience of the GL events team.

“The strength and stability of the GL events group globally, and the security that this backing affords, is a very positive thing for our current client base and our team and we can’t wait to get started.”
