Game of Thrones
In collaboration with Warner Media, Linen Mill Studios (LMS) designed and developed a world-class Game of Thrones Studio Tour (GoTST) visitor attraction.
It’s a museum style tour that showcases sets, props, and costumes from all seasons of the hit TV series, immersing the visitor into a Game of Thrones experience of a lifetime. There are various interactive experiences that allow guests to physically connect with the show and gain a greater insight into the process of working on and creating the world’s most successful TV drama series.
LMS required a uniformed security service for the GoTST, the studio buildings and site, and a dedicated Park & Ride facility located at the Boulevard, Banbridge.
As industry leaders in the provision of security we were proud to be the sole provider of security services to the GoTST at LMS. We established security guarding in GoTST locations at the Boulevard and wider Banbridge area, as well as static, roaming and event security provisions across the province.
The contract was awarded during the site construction phase, during which time our team retained site security continuity throughout completion of the project . Additional security was provided for client friends and family pre-launch events, and for the official public launch which was attended by VIPs and the Northern Ireland Tourist Board.
Our team of 22 dedicated officers supported the installation and protection of the onsite sales and gift shops, branded retail merchandise and memorabilia. We also provided major construction security, protecting the irreplaceable Game of Thrones costumes, weapons, and sets. We worked as a consultative partner, implementing the latest security technologies to prevent any leak of the new attraction outside the internal team. It was vital to our client that this exclusive news was kept under wraps until the launch date.
In partnership with Linen Mill Studios, we created a bespoke security team who prioritised and enhanced the customer experience. We ensured client and customer safety by assessing perceived risks, supporting installation of technical anti-theft solutions, providing real-time data capture and detailed reporting via our Amberstone Security tablet technology application. Plus, tailored security training was provided to 22 security guards to safeguard the site assets.
