Staxtonbury 2014

Earlier this month a 20 person Professional Security event team assembled to provide security with a smile to a family based festival, Staxtonbury, in the coastal resort of Scarborough and recently received great feedback.

The three day festival now attracts over 5000 attendees all keen for the best camping space and a great view in the main arena or acoustic tent. The music led event is very family friendly with numerous children activities alongside superb facilities throughout the site.

Organiser, Ray Roberts
"This year was absolutely fantastic for us and the security personnel selected by Professional Security were a credit to both their company and Staxtonbury itself."

"We've received multiple pieces of positive feedback regarding the friendly approachable security and would particularly like to thank Luke and Dan for their help and professionalism throughout the weekend"

Team leader for the weekend Luke Warner said "It was a pleasure to work with Ray and his team at Staxtonbury. Our team covered three camping fields, access control of vehicles as well as the main entertainment areas and stage. I was pleased with everyone's performance and thank them for their hard work. It was nice to hear we received favorable feedback with individuals efforts acknowledged"


                                                         "All of the security team were friendly but in particular we would like to thank Cletus who stood out amongst the team, always proactively involving himself whilst remaining polite and friendly at all times. Hopefully we will see him again in 2015!"

Sheffield Pride 2014

With our events season well under way we were excited to provide a handpicked event team to this years' Sheffield Pride.

Following successfully being awarded the contract for the 2014 Sheffield Pride we undertook several site visits to Devonshire Green in Sheffield to ensure we fully understood the unique logistics of this popular event. After several meetings with Oliver Robinson, Operations Director for Sheffield Pride, we could see how passionate Oliver and his team were to ensure their event was brimming with entertainment and ensure a fun atmosphere with all attending safe at all times.

"I felt like you made it your business to fully understand our event and our attendees, then hand pick the most suited members of staff" 

Oliver Robinson, Sheffield Pride

On Saturday 28th June our 30 strong event team enjoyed a day in South Yorkshire providing both male and female operatives to cover all security aspects ; access and entry control, search teams, localised density monitoring, pit teams, artist escort, response teams .... the list goes on with one common theme, security with a smile!

Operations Manager, Jim Nuttall who worked on the day to oversee the team said " It was a great day enjoyed by all. I felt our team performed really well which was echoed by the feedback I received on the day from attendees. Oliver and the team were great to work with"

"I would like to thank both Brett and Jim and all of your staff who worked on the day for the  tremendous job Professional Security did at Sheffield Pride 2014. The event ran smoothly and stress free and you guys definitely played a big part in this. Your clearly well briefed and experienced staff members were professional, courteous, approachable and helpful.", Oliver Robinson

"I was actually congratulated after the event for selecting a fantastic security company"
