Stewards and marshalling
All Event Organisers are expected to have comprehensive plans and sufficient staff in place prior to the event to address the following:
- Emergency procedures and site evacuation plans
- On site security – before, during and after the event
- Provision of stewards (and SIA licensed security, if required)
- Traffic entering the park
- Car parking
- Out of hours access to the park
Stewards and marshals do not require an SIA license as long as their function is merely to check tickets and/or guide public. It would be helpful if you can indicate the steward numbers and locations on your site plan.
All Event Organisers are expected to have comprehensive plans and sufficient staff in place prior to the event to address the site security during build, break and throughout the live event as well as overnight.
Where an event is required to hold and operate a premises licence or temporary event notice under the Licensing Act 2003 and a person’s responsibilities include controlling access, evicting people or bag searches, then they will need them to hold Security Industry Authority (SIA) Licence.
All SIA staff are required to wear their badge at all times. It is the responsibility of the Event Organiser to ensure SIA badges held by staff are valid and in date.All event guidance
