The Great Yorkshire Fringe – Secured by Eboracum

The Great Yorkshire Fringe – A weird, wise and wonderful ten-day festival comes to York this Summer!

Eboracum Security are providing Security personnel throughout the ten day event fringewhich is set to be monumental.

Top notch comedians and fantastic family entertainment will be hitting York’s city centre in what promises to be a ten-day festival of fun and frivolity.

The Great Yorkshire Fringe takes place between July 24th and August 2nd 2015 and will see the city’s well-known thoroughfare transformed into a vibrant and exciting performance space. A curated festival with multiple stages, from the White Rose Rotunda to the little Tea Pot, there will be plenty of entertainment for young and old alike.

The line up will certainly attract people to the city and it has already boasted an act in the York Press as being Al Murray – The Pub Landlords Saloon. More details of what’s on and how to purchase tickets can be found here at


Eboracum Security have provided similar services to the City of York Council for the last four years, Illuminating York, Jorvik Viking Festival, York Pride, Kaboom Fireworks and many more.

York Races 2015 – are you prepared?

The 2015 York Racing season is upon us and now is the time for venues to consider their security options. 
The majority of the race meets are problem free and don’t have a massive impact on business in terms of crime & disorder however there is definitely a difference in atmosphere across the city.
The most notorious & problematic event is the Yorkshire Ebor Festival which is held in August.
Last year we provided security services at various venues, on top of our regular contracts. These included hotels such as Hotel 53, Park Inn & The Royal York Hotel. Our night time economy venues booked extra provisions too as a preventative measure.
Security operatives  don’t only provide a visual deterrent against disorder but also provide reassurance to regular customers.
Police presence is increased across the city in a bid to reassure residents and visitors and these officers are connected with our staff on the city center radio system which is also monitored by the council’s CCTV control
