Showsec, the crowd management and event security specialist, will be working with Music Plus Sport, the music promoter, on five major events this summer featuring performances by Little Mix, Jess Glynne and Sir Tom Jones.

Showsec has considerable operational experience of such occasions and are therefore hoping this will be the start of a long-term association.

Music Plus Sport operate a number of live music brands, including The Jockey Club Live venture, while also promoting concerts at venues such as Donington Park, Alnwick Castle, rugby stadiums and cricket grounds.

Simon Battersby, Showsec’s director, said: “We are delighted to be given this opportunity to work with Music Plus Sport and venture into this market of race/sports ground-style concerts, one which has enjoyed considerable growth in recent years.

“We have worked in the past with their Event Director Anthony Norris in a different guise, so we hope this will be the start of a long-term association with the business and contribute to a continuation of their success story in the future.”
