First class events for First Security’s events security team
First Security continues to build their events security portfolio with their involvement in the prestigious Globe’s Gala Dinner. Held last month, with a first class guest list including celebrities such as Dame Judi Dench, First Security delivered all manned guarding services throughout the event which was held at the Globe; a London theatre dedicated to the exploration of William Shakespeare’s work.
First Security’s events team, led by operations manager Angela Sayers, is made up of up to 30 officers that have been recruited and trained specifically to meet the needs of events security. Specialising in door supervision, emergency first aid including DEFIB, and customer service, the team are strengthening First Security’s presence within the events industry, and driving its portfolio forward.
The team has provided manned guarding services at several high profile events this year, including London Fashion Week and the African Arts Festival at Somerset House, Lloyds Register Open House, the Children Looked After (CLA) celebration at Southwark Council, the Sound of Music press night at Regents Park, as well as end of season parties at the Globe and Regents Park open air theatre. The services continue at events throughout this year including the ENO Fashion Awards on the 1st December, with events scheduled into 2014.
The latest event, The Globe’s Gala Dinner raised funds to support the building and activities of the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse. Named after the Globe’s visionary founder, the indoor theatre will host the education and artistic programs for young child actors of the Globe Young Players.
