What we think about leisure & events

The leisure sector provides an enormous contribution to the lifeblood of both the day-time & night-time economy in the UK. However, business owners and event organizers should be aware of the risks and dangers of running this type of business.
For example, in recent years we have seen a boom in the events sector, with countless music festivals happening during the summer. Event organizers put rules in place for attendees to follow. Unfortunately, however, not all attendees follow the rules resulting in them bringing-in prohibited items, which can compromise the security of attendees, the event & of the entire venue.
