Entertainer Insurance FAQ: Your Guide to Protecting Your Performances | Primo

  • What is entertainer insurance, and why do I need it?

    Entertainer insurance is a specialised insurance package designed to protect performers, DJs, bands, and other entertainment professionals from the risks associated with their work. It covers potential liabilities, like injuries to audience members or damage to venues, as well as protecting valuable equipment. It's essential to safeguard your livelihood and ensure you're not held personally liable for unexpected incidents during your performances.
  • What are the main types of insurance coverage available for entertainers?

    The primary types of cover include:
    • Public Liability Insurance: Covers claims for bodily injury or property damage caused to third parties during your performances.
    • Employers' Liability Insurance: A legal requirement if you employ staff, this covers compensation claims from employees who are injured or become ill due to their work.
    • Equipment Insurance: Also known as "all risks" cover, this protects your valuable equipment, such as instruments, sound systems, or costumes, from theft, damage, or loss.
    • Professional Indemnity Insurance: Covers legal costs and damages if you're accused of professional negligence, such as providing incorrect advice or making mistakes in your performance.
  • Do I need entertainer insurance if I'm just starting out as a performer?

    Yes, even if you're just starting your career, you still face the same risks as more established entertainers. Accidents can happen at any time, and without insurance, you could be personally liable for any resulting costs.
  • What factors affect the cost of entertainer insurance?

    Several factors influence your premium, including:
    • Type of entertainment: Some performances, like fire dancing or aerial acts, are considered higher risk than others.
    • Size of your audience: Larger audiences may increase the risk of accidents, which can affect your premium.
    • Value of equipment: If you have expensive equipment, you'll likely need higher coverage limits, leading to higher premiums.
    • Number of employees: If you have employees, the cost of employers' liability insurance will also be factored in.
  • Does entertainer insurance cover events outside of the UK?

    Some policies may offer international coverage, but it's important to check the specific terms and conditions of your policy. If you regularly perform abroad, you may need additional international coverage.
  • What happens if I cancel a performance due to unforeseen circumstances?

    If you have cancellation insurance, it can cover your financial losses if you need to cancel a performance due to unexpected events, such as illness, injury, or adverse weather conditions.
  • Does entertainer insurance cover injuries to myself or my band members?

    No, standard entertainer insurance doesn't cover injuries to yourself or your band members. For that, you would need personal accident insurance or a separate policy for your band members.
  • How do I choose the right entertainer insurance provider?

    Consider these factors when choosing a provider:
    • Experience: Look for an insurer with expertise in the entertainment industry.
    • Coverage options: Ensure the policy covers all your specific needs and equipment.
    • Customer service: Choose a provider with excellent customer service and a good reputation.
    • Cost: Compare quotes from different providers to find the best value for your money.
  • What should I do if an incident occurs during my performance?

    If an incident occurs, prioritize the safety of everyone involved. Gather as much information as possible, including contact details of witnesses, and report the incident to your insurer as soon as possible.
  • Why should I use a specialist broker like Primo for my entertainer insurance?

    Specialist brokers understand the unique needs of the entertainment industry and can tailor a policy that perfectly fits your requirements. They can also help you navigate the complexities of insurance jargon and ensure you get the best possible coverage at a competitive price.
