SECURITY

From the outset we have invested in offering a memorable musical experience in a safe environment while avoiding being a burden to the neighbourhood; these are high priorities for our club!

In the ‘80s and ‘90s the choice had been made to work with a private company to ensure safety. That, however, had no connection with our audience nor with the neighbourhood. Their striking presence came across more as a provocation than as a constructive resolution. Therefore we looked into the possibility of recruting our security locally, to bridge the gap. 

This initiative resulted in a steward project in which we provide new candidates with the the official training and consultancy they need, under the mentorship of experienced security agents from the neighbourhood, to become qualified security agents.  We then stimulate them to find work in this field and by doing so, ensure intake and opportunities for new candidates.
