Cordant Security granted two-year contract extension at Shakespeare’s Globe

Cordant Security, part of the Cordant Group, has been awarded a two-year contract extension to continue providing a wide range of dedicated security solutions at Shakespeare’s Globe located on London’s Bankside. The iconic venue’s management team has been impressed by Cordant’s consistently high standards and taken the decision to extend the partnership to 2021.

Since last year, Cordant has supplied a 24/7-365 staffed security solution at Shakespeare’s Globe, which comprises The Globe Theatre and The Sam Wanamaker Playhouse and an education and research faculty. Guided tours are offered, as well as retail, catering and event spaces. The venue attracts over one million visitors each year.

Cordant’s remit on site includes a variety of search and screening solutions, internal and external patrolling, overt and plain clothes security and access control, including key holding, deliveries and car park management. Cordant’s security officers will continue to live monitor CCTV and report and respond to any incidents. They’ve also been equipped with specific customer service training to answer queries from members of the public.

Sandra Lynes Timbrell, director of exhibitions, tours and visitor experience on site, said: “Over the past year we’ve been thoroughly impressed by Cordant Security, whose team remains committed to prioritising the safety of our guests, as well as further enhancing the overall visitor experience. This contract extension is well deserved.”

Brendan Musgrove, managing director at Cordant Security, responded: “We have taken great pride in being given the opportunity to support one of the UK’s most famous venues and this has been demonstrated by our exceptional service levels. We’re extremely pleased to cement this important working relationship with the Globe and we look forward to the next two years and beyond.”
