Business insurance for Performers


For professional performers, insurance needs to cover a lot of bases. As a creative, you’re devoted to practice, auditions, rehearsals and shows, but you also spend a lot of time travelling from venue to venue. Your discipline may carry the risk of injury and you may need to work on sets that depend on the professional and practical skills of other people. Business insurance that covers you for all eventualities means you can get on with doing what you do best.

Insuring yourself as a performer


A great performance takes hard work, rehearsals and planning, so when things go wrong it can be a real let down. If props or instruments break, people make mistakes or you have to cancel a performance, it’s annoying for you and your audience, but you could do without financial and legal headaches too. We’ll put together a comprehensive insurance package that’s tailored to your needs, whether you're an artist, a musician, a dancer or an actor.

Why you need business insurance in the performing arts


Coping with injuries

Sometimes you suffer for your art – literally. Injuries are upsetting and stressful, but they can also cost you time, money and possibly your reputation. A serious accident could even end your career. We’ll help with expenses and even the cost of retraining if you can’t return to the stage. We’ve got your back so you can focus on entertaining your audience.

Protecting your equipment

Whatever your creative calling, chances are you need to rely on some kind of equipment, even if it’s only your mobile devices or your laptop. If your equipment is broken or stolen it means losing time and money, while dealing with angry clients, until you can source replacements or repairs. It could even put client data at risk. Having insurance for performers in place means we’ll cover those costs and get you back on the stage in no time.

Problems with data

As a performer you need to get the word out. Pulling in an audience can be hard work and one of the best ways to do it is through mailing lists and social media. But that brings its own problems and once you start sharing or holding data, you need to be careful that it doesn't fall into the wrong hands, either through a mistake on your part or because of a malicious cyber attack.
