Specialist Christmas Lights Insurance

Protectivity’s Event Insurance policy is designed to protect those who are organising a city, town or village Christmas Light switch-on or display. The policy includes Public Liability as standard, this will protect you as the orgainser from third-party claims.

Together with liability cover we offer Equipment Cover and Employers’ Liability. It is important to consider these additional cover options, especially the latter if you have volunteers or paid staff.

It is likely that your Christmas light event will only happen once a year, therefore our One-Off Event Insurance policy will be best suited for your needs. If you do organise more than one event in a given year then we also provide an Annual Multi-Event policy.

What Insurance Do You Need For Your Christmas Lights Event?

When organising a Christmas Lights event it’s important to understand exactly what insurance cover you need. These are the four things you need to consider:

Public Liability

Whether it’s a member of the public tripping over some wiring or poorly placed lights causing fire, Public Liability offers vital protection. Should your display be blamed for injury, incident or property damage by an attendee or member of the public, your insurance will handle legal costs and any subsequent settlement.

Employers' Liability

To help with the smooth running of your event you may employ some members of staff such as electricians or technicians. In such a scenario you are required to take out Employers’ Liability with your policy. This will cover you if any of these workers were to be injured and hold your event responsible.

Event Equipment Cover

From the display lights to other party equipment, we can add protection on to your policy for the items you use to make your event run smoothly. This includes cover for items owned by you as well as hired or leased equipment.

Event Cancellation

If you are hosting an event, we can provide up to £15,000 worth of protection should you be forced to cancel or rearrange your event due to Adverse Weather only. You can get your event cancellation insurance quote below.
