Why do Performers need Insurance?

Performers Insurance has been designed to protect entertainers performing at one-off events and includes the vital cover that can help to avoid costly claims. For example, if a third party makes a claim against you for causing a physical injury or damage to their belongings, public liability will provide protection for these scenarios.

For large and small events there’s always a risk of accidental damage, loss and thefts when moving equipment between temporary events and in transit. We include event equipment cover, in our entertainment insurance, from £2500 to up to £50,000 to help you avoid costly financial losses.

There are also circumstances that can unfold whereby an event is forced to be cancelled for uncontrollable reasons. You can opt to include our event cancellation cover to protect you from deposits and other costs you incur prior to the event, loss of ticket sales and more.

If you are performing at a private venue, it is likely that they will expect proof of your public liability cover to offer your services.

Other additional benefits that can be added to your policy include Employers’ Liability cover, which is a legal requirement if you employ any staff or volunteers.
