As a festival, you can get general business insurance from any insurer. But there are good reasons for working with a specialist broker who understands how festivals operate and can provide tailor-made insurance and advice for festivals.
Festivals can involve some major implications for insurance, and many non-specialist insurers have fixed (and inaccurate) ideas about the industry – charging high premiums to protect themselves against the perceived high costs of cancellation, temperamental artists, unsociable hours and “high-risk” activities.
Specialist Festival Insurance
We've designed Festival Portfolio to be a specialist policy that uniquely fulfills all the festival insurance requirements of a 21st century festival.
It offers exceptionally comprehensive protection, with all covers under one policy, helping to protect festivals from spiralling insurance premiums, inadequate cover and expensive duplications. Festival Portfolio is exclusively available through La Playa and is underwritten by arts-friendly Covea Insurance.
La Playa is the official provider of festival insurance for the British Arts Festivals Association and the Association of Festival Organisers. Click on the logos for more information.
