Phoenix Security provided security once again at this year's Northumberland Plate Festival

Phoenix Security provided both Door Supervisors and Phoenix Eye Stewards to manage the security for the Northumberland Plate Festival over the weekend.

This year, Door Supervisors were also provided to manage security across the event which included music as well as the prestigious racing.

On Friday night, Madness took to the stage to perform in front of 10, 500 people entertaining them with some of their famous hits such as House of Fun and It Must be Love.

On the Saturday crowds flocked to Gosforth Park Racecourse for champagne and a flutter on the horses as the festival culminated with the world famous John Smith's Northumberland Plate, or the "Pit-man's Derby," one of the highlights of the racing calendar and the North East's biggest racing event.

Phoenix Security provided the security at Newcastle Racecourse over the weekend, working alongside our Stewarding company Phoenix Eye to make the event safe and trouble free.
