Venues, Theatres & Independent cinemas

Venues, Theatres & Independent cinemas

Have you been paying lip service to insurance? Now’s the time to engage!

In the arts, the show must always go on – for venues, theatres and independent cinemas, insurance isn’t just about processing a claim, it’s about thinking laterally to solve challenges and problems fast. By supporting you with specialist cover and sound risk management advice, La Playa can help you do a great job.

Venues, theatres and independent cinemas present very specific sets of risk exposures – and now your digital and online risks can expose you globally. At La Playa, we’re passionate about the arts and creative industries – many of us are practitioners and active consumers; in fact, La Playa founded the first ever corporate art collective!

Why work with a specialist broker?

  1. We understand the risks and pressures you face – we speak your language
  2. You’ll get the right cover where you need it – and NOT where you don’t
  3. You’ll feel supported with expert advice to help you make the right insurance decisions
  4. Our specialist ‘umbrella’ policies are designed to prevent gaps and expensive duplications between policies


What if...
...An audience member is injured at your performance or viewing?
...Borrowed costumes, props or equipment get damaged?
...One of your performers is injured on stage?
...A dispute goes legal?
...Your website was attacked by a virus? Could this be unknowingly sent to your audience?
...You experience network failure or damage, hacking or cyber crime causing ‘down-time’ or denial of service - resulting in lost income?
...There's an incident in the vicinity of your venue, theatre or cinema and there's no access to your premises?
