What Our Clients Say

  • Brent Mitchell, Events Crew Ltd
    "We have worked alongside the team at Great Dorset for a number of years and always found them to be very professional.
    We employed their services recently to support two significant local events.
    The first was for a Fun Fair for Pack Monday Fair in Sherborne, Dorset. GDES provided SIA Security Guards over several nights. The event was a success and passed without incident. The Supervisor and Guards were punctual, polite and smartly turned out. Police liaison was required as part of the role.
    The second was for the Sherborne Fireworks 2016 in the grounds of the magnificent Sherborne Castle. The event attracted over 9000 people and again this passed without incident. GDES again provided SIA Security Guard cover for the event. Communications were strong and a professional service was provided.
    We would have no hesitation recommending Great Dorset Event Services and we look forward to working with them a number of times again this year."
