What will your Fete Insurance Cover?

When organising a fete, there are four sections of insurance you should be most aware of. Public Liability comes as standard on all our policies, but each of the remaining three benefits can be removed or altered to suit your needs.

Public Liability

If a member of the public or other third party was injured at your fete or suffered property damage, they could take legal action. Public Liability provides you with cover for the costs associated with defending you as an event organiser as well as any settlement.

Event Equipment Cover

You may not be using much in the way of high-tech equipment at your fete, but protecting it is important nonetheless. We can include up to £20,000 of protection against damage, loss and theft of your items during your fete.

Employers' Liability

If you have any volunteers or paid staff at your fete (unless they are sub-contractors with their own Public Liability insurance), Employers’ Liability is a legal requirement. This covers you if a staff member was injured and blamed you as the event organiser.

Event Cancellation

If the worst happens and you are forced to cancel, we can provide up to £10,000 worth of protection should adverse weather or the non-attendance of a key individual mean your were unable to continue with your event as planned.

 Protectivity dealt with everything, even communicating with the other party which was just what I needed!
