Pitman’s People have worked on events with capacities of up to 500,000 attendees. We have extensive experience in finding the right event security staff for your event and providing impeccable safety and enjoyment.

The safety and security of your event attendees and staff is our top priority.

Bespoke security packages

Pitman’s People don’t just offer a basic, ‘one fits all’ event security package. We supply staff tailored specifically to your event to ensure safety is never compromised. In addition to event stewards and site security we also provide traffic marshalls, fire marshalls, first aiders, door supervisors, VIP close protection, pit stewards, search staff, back stage staff and response teams. Let us know what your specific needs are, and we’ll deliver a security team to match your requirements.

Safety and Training

To hold a successful large or small-scale event you need more than just bulk numbers of security staff. You need to know that your event security team are trained and responsible. At Pitman’s People we only supply staff who have a proven work history, and who have been trained on all the relevant procedures and policies by our in-house trainer. And just in case that’s not enough, we also guarantee all of our event security staff are qualified by the Security Industry Authority (SIA).
