What is event insurance?

Event insurance is different to public liability insurance, and can cover any event you hold including weddings, village fetes, exhibitions, sporting fixtures.

Sometimes things go wrong, and it’s out of your control. Event insurance should be purchased as soon as possible, to ensure your policy covers absolutely everything involved with your event. As soon as there is money spent on an event, there is a potential of it becoming non-recoverable.

What it covers and excludes

All events are different, therefore policies will be tailor made to your event, which is why it’s really important to discuss the specifics of your event with insurers.

The most common things that people claim for, and that event insurance will cover, is allegations against event organisers that they’ve been negligent because somebody has hurt themselves and then there’s a claim for compensation from the event organiser.

It will also cover property being lost or damaged at events, either by the weather or going missing after events.

The main exclusion on event insurance is terrorism, however you should automatically be offered a quote for terrorism, if you are looking for a cancellation policy for an event. The other main exclusion would be the lack of interest or low ticket sales for an event. If you are no longer able to finance the event due to those issues, that is also generally excluded.

Types of event insurance

Public liability insurance

Public liability insurance protects you in case a member of the public (i.e. your event attendees or passersby) gets injured as a result of your event. If you’re hosting your event at a venue, chances are they already have public liability insurance. However, that only covers them, not you as an event organiser.

Employer’s liability insurance

If you’re paying your event staff (excluding working with volunteers), you’re required by law to take out an employer’s liability insurance in case they get hurt during the event.

Equipment insurance

You might be using some equipment for your event, whether that’s a microphone, camera, sound system, or projector. Equipment insurance will cover you in case this equipment is damaged or stolen.

Third-party damage insurance

Third-party damage insurance covers you in case the venue you’ve hired for the event becomes damaged while it’s under your control. It can be part of a public liability insurance policy.

Multiple events insurance

If you’re putting on regular events, then it’s a good idea to take out multiple events insurance. It’ll save some money, as well as the bother of taking out a new policy for every event. 

Wedding insurance

Wedding insurance covers a problem with the venue or a supplier, or a family member or key wedding member falling ill. Venue cancellation and supplier failure are the two main reasons people buy wedding insurance; policies are available from £19 for weddings of £2,500 and go beyond £300 for a £100,000 wedding, and also depends if the wedding is abroad.
