At Trent Bridge we work tirelessly to make sure your visit to our historic home is as enjoyable, safe and secure as possible.
Our hearty Trent Bridge welcome is world-renowned, and we also employ a host of security measures at our events – many of which you will see during your visit, and many more which you won’t.
Our site is under 24-hour surveillance, monitored via a central control room and a team of highly experienced staff who work closely with the local police and other authorities to share learnings, best practice intelligence and security procedures.
