Basingstoke Live is a free, two-day, music festival organised by Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council, in association with local promoters. Held at War Memorial Park each July, the lively festival attracts around 10,000 visitors and welcomes a diverse line-up of local, national, and international musical talent.
In 2017, with its current security contract ending, Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council decided to seek out a new security supplier. They opened the contract to tender, in a bid to find a contractor capable of securing an event of Basingstoke Live’s magnitude. Venture was one of five companies bidding for the job.
Requirements of the festival’s security contract included:

Together with demonstrating the appropriate skills, experience and resource, the process required each contractor to outline their response to a number of hypothetical security scenarios. Impressed by Venture’s proposal, as well as the team’s broad experience, knowledge and professionalism, the Council awarded Venture Security the Basingstoke Live contract.
Services provided by Venture Security include:
“What really stands out is their passion for what they do. They want to get it right and to provide the best service they possibly can, which always shines through.”
