What insurance do entertainers need?

Public liability insurance for entertainers and performers

Public liability insurance is often an important cover for entertainers and the performing arts industry, as it can protect you if someone is injured or their property is damaged because of your business. Simply Business offers between £1 million and £5 million in cover, to protect you against this cost.

Employers' liability insurance for entertainers with staff

If you have employees, contractors, casual workers or temporary staff, you’re required by law to take out employers’ liability insurance. It’ll cover claims from employees who’ve been injured or become seriously ill as a result of working for you.

You can also add other covers, such as business equipment insurance and stock insurance.

Entertainer insurance policy details

  • Check you’ve read your policy documents carefully in order to understand any exclusions
  • Don’t underestimate the cost of replacing your equipment
  • If you employ people, even in your own home, you are legally obliged to take out employers’ liability insurance. Failure to do so could result in heavy fines

Another important consideration is any specialist tools or equipment you have. Often, work revolves around your kit, so our business equipment options will help take care of the day to day risks, letting you get on with the job in hand.

It is a very good and easy to use service. I've been a customer for several years and the renewal system is very straight forward. I've always found the quotes competitive too. I'd definitely recommend Simply Business.
