Our team has been awarded Best Crowd Management / Security at the Festival Supplier Awards for a record breaking third year!
Our Operations Management team Amy Stanley, Tom Sharman, Fran Butterfield & Tim Ratcliffe attended the awards ceremony yesterday evening (30th January 2020) where the security and event industry’s leading organisers, stakeholders and suppliers met to celebrate the highlights of 2019.
The event was hosted at the prestigious Hurlingham Club in London and compared by BBC Introducing Champion & Radio 1 DJ, Huw Stephens.
To be crowned the Best Crowd Management / Security team for the third-year running is a record breaking and incredible achievement for us. Crowd Management is a huge part of FGH Security’s provision and something we take pride in. This award demonstrates the passion, hard work and dedication our team have shown to all our clients over the past year.
2019 has been a highly decorated year for FGH. Last year, in addition to winning the award for Best Crowd Management / Security at the Festival Supplier Awards, we also won the awards for Customer Care Initiative of Year & Security Guarding Company of the Year Under £25m Turnover at the SEA’s (Security & Fire Excellence Awards). We also took the award for Outstanding Event Security Team at the 2019 UK OSPA’s (Outstanding Security Performance Awards). And were recognised by Minds Workplace Well-being index and The Sunday Times Top 100 list, as well as gaining a 3 Star Best Companies accreditation. We are hoping for this success to continue into the new decade.

The Festival Supplier Awards started in 2014 to recognise the achievements and hard work of outdoor event suppliers. The festival sector has diversified rapidly in the last few years and these awards provide a platform to celebrate the ‘behind-the-scenes’ teams that are at the heart of the successful festivals and events up and down the UK.
Operations Manager Amy Stanley is delighted by FGH’s success: “What a year it has been, well done to all who were successful tonight. This is the third year in a row we have won Best Crowd Management / Security at the FSA’s and it’s a truly humbling achievement. Congratulations team! It was an honour to pick up this award today on behalf of Team FGH.”
Head of Operations, Ben Knott has congratulated the Operations team and their role in leading the teams during our successful festival season, “Well done to everyone at FGH Security but especially Amy, Tim & Tom who have led the events division from the front for the past few years by using science and cutting-edge thinking. They are the future of crowd management!”
The next awards ceremony we will be attending is the 2020 UK OSPA’s (Outstanding Security Performance Awards) where we have been shortlisted for 5 categories.
