Performing Arts Insurance

Performing Arts Insurance

Our specialist all-in-one performing arts insurance policy

The performing arts, by nature, involve some major implications for insurance, and many non-specialist insurers have fixed (and inaccurate) ideas about the industry. Often they charge high premiums to protect themselves against the perceived high costs of cancellation, temperamental artists, unsociable hours and “high-risk” activities.

Performing Arts Insurance from La Playa has been designed with you in mind. We're a broker who understands the arts and can negotiate realistic terms with insurers. Our portfolio helps you avoid expensive duplications by covering multiple risks under a single policy, including:

  • Property: computers, sheet music, office, theatrical and music equipment, stock and musical instruments
  • Business Interruption: protects income streams during physical and technological disruptions (fire, flood, power & telecommunications failure, prevention of access to venue, failure of safety curtain, sound & lighting, seating & staging)
  • Employers, Product & Public Liabilities: covers compensation payments arising, from damage to third party property or personal injury (audiences, freelancers, volunteers, merchandise, venues)
  • Money: box office income, per diems, programme/merchandise cash
  • Annual Travel/Touring: trip cancellation, medical expenses, passport replacement, loss of baggage, delays

Premiums start from £560.

With our Performing Arts Insurance, we can also arrange:

  • Event Cancellation Insurance: cover against financial loss as a result of cancellation, abandonment, postponement or re-scheduling of an event
  • Trustee Liability/Directors' & Officers' Liability: protection for alleged mismanagement of the organisation
  • Professional Liabilities: helping to defend you against allegations of libel, slander, infringement of copyright, breach of confidentiality
