Tramlines Festival, Sheffield


Providing Door Supervisors for Sheffield's Tramlines Festival

Phoenix Security provided security for various venues in Sheffield during this year's Tramlines Festival.

The Tramlines Festival is Sheffield's inner city music festival which takes place every summer in various sites throughout the city.

The Festival took over Sheffield's city centre from the 25th - 27th July with various performances from artists in venues and locations across the city. This year the line-up included Katy B, The Cribs and Public Enemy.

Phoenix Security provided additional Door Supervisors to work in our managed inner city venues to maintain security and provide an enjoyable and safe atmosphere for those attending the festival.

The city centre was buzzing with life across the weekend festival which was a huge success.

Some of the comments on the Tramlines Facebook page included "Totally amazing guys - a city event for the whole city!! The feeling on the streets and in the bars was one of total enjoyment n happiness - more of the same please across the city centre (and beyond) for next year - keep up the fabulous work" and "had an awesome time. Public enemy were amazing, the sun shone and didn't see one bit of trouble anywhere. Roll on next year!"

It was great for Phoenix Security to be part of such an exciting event for the city which ran smoothly, without any issues and with all festival goers having an excellent time.

Thank-you to all of our Door Supervisors, our Area Manager Andy Sloan and Operations Manager Steve Ford who worked across the weekend and helped make the festival such a success.

Ladies Day 2014


Phoenix Security and Phoenix Eye work together to provide security on one of the biggest racing days of the calendar

Once again, Phoenix Security and Phoenix Eye provided security for Ladies Day at Newcastle Racecourse in Gosforth Park.

Phoenix Security provided SIA Licensed Door Supervisors who worked alongside Phoenix Eye Event Stewards to manage the security of the event.

This year, around 25,000 people attended the event at Newcastle's Gosforth Park where temperatures reached over 25 degrees.

Phoenix Security Door Supervisors provided security for Gosforth Park's bars and VIP areas as well as providing a Search Team to manage entry to the event.

It was one of the busiest (and hottest!) Ladies Day Events in recent years and the event was a huge success.

Thank-you to our SIA Licensed Door Supervisors and Phoenix Eye Event Stewards who worked hard all day in the hot sun - excellent work, team.

Northern Pride 2014


Phoenix Security and Phoenix Eye work together to provide security for Northern Pride 2014

Phoenix Security and Phoenix Eye worked together to manage the security at this year's Northern Pride in Newcastle, which celebrates the region's lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community.

This year the event warmed up with gigs at Newcastle's Times Square and Town Moor on the Friday night before kicking off with Saturday's Pride Parade.

The parade set off from Newcastle Civic Centre around noon on the Saturday and ended up at the Town Moor where celebrations continued across the weekend.

This years theme was Pride across the decades and people were encouraged to dress up as outrageously as they wanted.

The city centre was bursting with colour and even though there was some sign of rain it definitely didn't dampen anyone's spirits.

The Pride Parade then arrived at Newcastle's Town Moor for the weekend's main event where there were plenty of stalls, food outlets, bars, fairground rides and performances to keep the large crowd entertained.

Saturday's entertainment included leading tribute act Rhianna Reloaded, 80's pop star Sinitta, X Factor winner Shayne Ward and Northern Proud Voices, The North East's community choir for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans people.

The rain definitely didn't put a dampener on the event with over 7,000 people marching in the parade and attending the Town Moor's event - making this year the biggest Northern Pride yet.

The entertainment continued on the Sunday with yet more stars lined up to entertain the crowds including 90's Eurodance/pop group the Vengaboys.

Phoenix Security provided SIA Licensed Door Supervisors to work alongside Phoenix Eye's Event Stewards, providing search teams, crowd control and general event safety.

It was great to be part of such an enjoyable event. The whole weekend was a huge success leaving both organisers and visitors extremely happy.

Thank-you to all Phoenix Security Door Supervisors and Phoenix Eye Stewards
who worked across the weekend, great work team.

Help for Heroes Charity Fun Day 2014


Providing security for a local charity event in memory of a fallen soldier

This weekend we provided security for an annual Help for Heroes charity event at The Fox in Sheffield.

The event was a family fun day, with live music and football, in memory of CPL Liam Riley who was killed in action in 2010 as he tried to rescue a fallen colleague.

Every year since there has been a charity event in the village he grew up in to celebrate his birthday and raise money for the charity Help for Heroes.

We provided security for this year's event which was a huge success and raised lots of money for an excellent cause.
