Event Security
In September 2005, The Brickyard in Carlisle hosted The Babyshambles with high profile lead singer, Pete Doherty. In order to ensure the smooth running of the event, The Brickyard owners opted to provide a six man Close Protection team for Pete while he was in and around the venue.

Pro-Tect UK can provide you with a specially selected event security team for any type of event. Events that we have experience in supplying to include:

  Boxing & MMA events
  Rock & Pop concerts
  Private parties & Functions
  Carnivals and Fetes
  Corporate functions

  Sporting events

All staff are trained to control and co-ordinate crowds and handle incidents discreetly, especially in congested areas. The staff we select for festivals are varied and selected according to the specific event, in turn allowing for the profile of the target audience that will be in attendance, for instance a music festival would require a younger more laid back open minded member of staff, where as a Corporate event would require a more mature staff member with a formal approach. This is carefully discussed during the background gathering process when we liaise with a client.

Our Operations manager & Business Managers will work closely with the event organizers and provide additional advice and support where necessary during the planning stages of an event.

If the event is of a nature where it may require this, we would also liaise with the police and emergency Services to ensure that Security and Emergency contingency plans are in place before the opening of your event, and in turn will ensure that all will run smoothly during the event period.
