A venture customer since 2014, Salisbury Racecourse, located in Wiltshire, is a flat course that hosts 16 racedays per year. With three tiers of spectator enclosure, along with corporate hospitality boxes, each raceday attracts up to 9,000 attendees. Facilities for guests, attending raceday meets, include a range of on site bars and eateries, while live music events and family entertainment is also provided as part of Salisbury Racecourse’s annual raceday program.
When responsibility for racecourse security passed to Supervisor, Debbie Mouland, Salisbury Racecourse had been using the same security provider for around 20 years. Following a number of issues, including poor communication, in 2014 the racecourse decided to look for an alternative security partner.
Requirements of Salisbury Racecourse’s security included:
With the safety of Salisbury Racecourse’s spectators of paramount importance, the security contract called for an agency with experience of working large-scale events and the resource to provide at least 45-60 trained security personnel per raceday. Having crossed paths with Venture’s founder, Paul Howe, at a local Pub Watch meeting, Debbie invited the team to tender. Impressed by their comprehensive proposal, experience, and attitude, Salisbury Racecourse subsequently awarded Venture its security contract.
Services Venture Security provide Salisbury Racecourse include:
“Their communication is amazing and the whole team is very accessible. No request is ever too much trouble."
