Main Event Security was created in 2005 and is based in the South West of England. We began as a small crowd safety and security management team assisting in the planning and execution of the Blues on the Farm festival in Chichester (3000 patrons) and the Big Chill festival at Eastnor castle (30,000) outside Ledbury, amongst other events throughout the UK.Due to our professionalism and positive effective security approach we quickly became established as a Limited company in Dec 2007, and our reputation for running events both large and small was gaining favour in the industry. Amongst other events and festivals, we were approached to run all security and crowd safety arrangements at The Green Man festival in 2006 and we have grown with that festival since, it now has a 20,000 licence.

Main Event Security has through the course of our actions been recognised and recommended as a reliable, effective and professional company to work with at events and festivals of all types and sizes and our operations range from festivals such as the Green Man Festival, Isle of Wight Festival, Glastonbury to name but a few, to high profile events across the UK. We have worked closely and effectively with various agencies throughout the UK and refs are available. It is our aim and mission to ensure that at each and every event we are involved with that our clients and customers enjoy a safe and friendly experience that is unique to that event. We strive to ensure that our clients’ tasks and objectives are met and their expectations are exceeded and we can deal dynamically with any issues or problems that arise at any time.


Our approach to business is to have good communication with all clients, customer and staff to ensure that our service is consistently high. To do this we must have effective leadership, motivated staff, and satisfied clients. We must always strive to improve. We comply with ISO9001:2008 and have a Quality Management System in place as well as confirming to BS7858, BS7499, BS7960.


Our Management team is made up of former military and experienced security personnel.  All are highly motivated and conscientious operatives who are well versed with running large scale events as well as smaller tasks. We have a dedicated Festival & Event Management team who work along side our Static site and Corporate bookings team.  We ensure that all tasks have a dedicated manager to assist with clients requirements and needs. 


We have worked with Main Event Security for the last 12 years and I would wholeheartedly recommend them. They have a great deal of experience working at outdoor events and understand the dynamics of crowd safety, as well as providing friendly and professional staff they can advise you on your event’s requirements. They have always provided us with the highest calibre service and I am sure you will enjoy working with them.

RGB have worked with Main Event since our time together at The Big Chill Festival. Since then we have worked together on multiple events each summer season. During this time the service and delivery have always been excellent.  Main Event provide us with close protection teams and FOH security. The individuals selected have often been from military backgrounds and have always been thoughtful, intelligent and responsive.

This gives us the confidence to get on with our job knowing that we are covered for the many situations that can occur in licensing environments. We have worked with many other security firms over the years and we can honestly say the Main Event are the best company to work with.

Main Event Security have covered numerous Red Bull events for me large and small and have always delivered a great service. Staff are always managed and briefed at each event meaning we get customized security adapting to different crowds. Nothing we asked was too much and I will definitely be using them at future events.
