Keeping you safe…
We take the safety of visitors to Bath Christmas Market very seriously. Working closely with Avon and Somerset Constabulary, we ensure the best security measures are in place for your safety and wellbeing.
There are the security measures you can see, and, of course, ones you can’t. As you wander around the Market, you will spot our fantastic Security Team, who work around the clock to ensure you have a safe, secure and suitably festive visit. At times, you will see uniformed officers who will be at the Market as part of Project Servator, an initiative aimed at disrupting a range of criminal activity whilst providing a reassuring presence for the public. You can find out more about Project Servator in the short video below.
Remember, it may be nothing, but our security teams are there to help, so if you see something, say something. Our security staff are there for your wellbeing and peace of mind, and will always take your concerns seriously.
Bath Christmas Market is supporting Counter Terrorism Police’s campaign to help keep crowded places safe over the festive period.
Officers are calling on the public and those who work in our busy towns and cities to remain vigilant and report any concerns to staff, security or – in confidence – to the police at gov.uk/ACT.
This annual campaign asks everyone to be the extra eyes and ears of the police, so we can work together to tackle terrorism.
Senior National Coordinator for Protective Security, Deputy Assistant Commissioner Lucy D’Orsi, says: “We are asking everyone out and about enjoying the season to put security at the top of their festive list.
“The chances of any one person being caught up in a terrorist incident are low, but sadly, as we saw in 2017 and more recently, attacks can be carried out anywhere and anytime.
“The national threat level remains ‘Substantial’, meaning an attack is likely, so we need to remain vigilant.
“Our message is not to worry that you might be wasting our time. If you see something that doesn’t look right – act. Report it either to local security or staff – or to police at gov.uk/ACT – and let us check it out.
“A few minutes of your time could be a precious gift that helps saves lives. Please be a good CT citizen this festive period.”
