Understanding insurance for performing artists

Working in Performing Arts means you’ll need a reliable business insurance policy that will help you protect yourself from risks associated with your business.

What Performing Arts insurance includes

Public Liability insurance

Public Liability insurance cover provides protection in case someone who works for your business injures or damages a member of the public or their property. If the third party then claims against your business and are awarded damages, your Public Liability insurance would cover the costs including legal fees that may occur in defending a claim. Public Liability Insurance is one of the most common insurance policy elements. Policy covers are available from £1m, £2m, £5m and can be higher upon request and subject to the insurer’s terms and conditions.

Employers Liability cover

Employers Liability insurance is a legal obligation to have if you employ permanent or temporary members of staff. As an employer, it is a legal responsibility to ensure that you have provided safe and secure surroundings for your employees. Cover is available at a standard level of £10m.
