Cordant Security has been awarded a prestigious contract to provide a wide-range of security solutions at Shakespeare’s Globe, the iconic theatre based on Bankside, London. Cordant will supply a 24/7 staffed security solution 365-days-a-year as the theatre continues to prioritise the safety of its visitors and employees.
