NPS has been a supporting partner of the popular Melbourne summer event since the night markets began a decade ago.  “Part of our role is to provide the on-the-ground event security team  to help keep the thousands of people who visit this vibrant event safe and secure,” says NPS CEO Rachaell Saunders.

“We love getting involved with events like this that celebrate culture and community. The organisers put a lot of effort into making them happen, and so our event security team works hard to ensure everyone who visits has a safe and enjoyable experience,” she says.

“And with our Head Office right opposite the market, it’s also a great chance for our team to enjoy some of what’s on offer.”

Over summer, the South Melbourne Market is transformed into the buzzing night market from 5:30pm on Thursday evenings between from 4 January up until 22 February 2018. 

As well as hawker van style food and drink, handmade clothing and crafts, music plays a big part of the celebrations with Melbourne musicians and buskers are invited to apply to play at Night Markets.
