It is important that the event organiser has public liability insurance in place for at least £5 million, in respect of one claim. The event organiser should also ensure that all contractors and performers assisting with the event have the same amount of public liability insurance in their own name. Depending upon the nature of the organisation and the proposed event, other insurances may also be required. These policies must indemnify the Council against any claim arising from the event.
Insurance should cover the whole event time period, including set up and take down.
The events team will need to see your policy documents no later than 28 days before the event.
If you make a claim on your insurance you should advise the events team.
