What does it cover you for?
Public Liability insurance for events is necessary in order to cover the costs associated with defending the event organiser against claims arising from the injury or death of a member of the public, or for the damage or loss of their property. We provide three levels of Public Liability in this policy; £1 million, £2 million and £5 million.
With Public Liability cover in place, your insurance policy will handle the legal costs associated with defending you and any subsequent payment that is deemed necessary.
No matter how well you plan your event, whether it’s a food festival, a craft fair or a conference, accidents can happen. This could be an attendee falling over lose cables, being taken ill after eaten the food you provide or a window could be smashed whilst setting up your event.
If any of these things occurred and were blamed on the negligence of the event, legal action could be brought against you.

How much Public Liability cover do you need?
Once you have decided that you are going to seek out Public Liability protection it’s up to you to decide just how much cover you need.
Every event is different, and the level that you choose, whether it is £1 million or £5 million will depend on your circumstances. One thing that you do need to consider though is the venue that you hire may have their own rules as to the minimum level of cover they require you to have. Speak with your venue to see if there are any rules you need to follow.
If you are set to have a large number of attendees or particularly high risk activities, it may be worth considering a higher level of Public Liability for your event. Ultimately, it is down to the event organiser to decide on the level of cover taken out, but going without any protection at all is very risky business.
