“I have worked with Capricorn Security for over 10 years and they have consistently provided the most reliable, professional and dedicated service. Their guards are friendly, helpful, capable and professional. They are always at the end of the phone for any queries and react quickly and efficiently when the inevitable last minute shift requests occur. As a client I am made to feel valued due to their regular informative communication and attitude. I couldn’t recommend them highly enough and hope to work with them for a long time to come.”

“Had the great pleasure of working with Capricorn over the last decade and can safely say that they have always provided an excellent security-service across all aspects of the film-making process. We have most recently worked with Capricorn on Series 6 of ‘Peaky Blinders’, on which they provided us with the very best of security guards. Their management team are always on-hand, amenable and will do anything to make the job run as smoothly as possible. I’ve been fortunate enough to work alongside some of the same guards for the last several years, which really helps to give you piece of mind, knowing that the set is being secured by people you can trust. It also helps to create a friendly atmosphere on-set too. All in all, Capricorn are reliable, dedicated and always available to help.”

“I have employed the services of Capricorn Security since 2008 to support my work in the film and television industry providing location and on set security at all levels.
In my mind Capricorn are the only one stop shop. As a Supervising Location Manager, I know they can guarantee an excellent service, with good, motivated men and women who will do all they are asked to do to support filming on location without fail. It is a tight run ship!
I have total confidence in this company, in Billy, Dalton and their staff. I would have no hesitation in recommending their services to production companies interested in filming in the North of England.”

“We brought a new festival to Manchester at the end of this summer. Sourcing new suppliers in new locations can be challenging, as you delve into unknown areas with unknown clients and audiences alike. As soon as I reached out to Capricorn Ric was keen to talk on the phone and learn as much about the event as possible. He was confident and reassuring over the phone and demonstrated that his team could fit the brief for what we needed. On site, Ric and his team were fantastic to work with – attentive, diligent and friendly with customers. Any problems that arose were dealt with swiftly, and the team always made sure we knew what had gone on. A fantastic team to work with and hopefully a long-lasting partnership.”
