GL events Owen Brown

GL events Owen Brown has been providing stylish, state of the art temporary structures for more than 100 years. Our story began in 1913 when trader, Owen Brown, started selling ropes, tarpaulins and netting at his shop in Loughborough, Leicestershire and nearby farmers’ markets.

The formation of GL events Owen Brown

Owen Brown Ltd was acquired by GL events in 2002 and has gone from strength to strength with a £30 million investment in its award-winning temporary structure range. Although, we haven’t travelled far geographically, with our headquarters based at Castle Donington on the border of Leicestershire and Derbyshire.

Despite our humble, rope-selling origins, GL events Owen Brown has become synonymous with quality and today provides Owen Brown marquees, and other bespoke temporary event structures, for some of the UK’s most prestigious events throughout the season’s sporting and social calendar.
