Public Liability Insurance for Bands
22/01/09 - Jeff Matthews would be interested to know any contact details for companies that will offer Public Liability Insurance to bands. He says, "I know the Musicians Union offer it as part of their membership, but that does not cover the whole band, members of the Union or not".
These are some of the responses I received
Try Victor C Knight in Winchmore Hill, North London. They were
the old MU insurers. http://www.victorcknight.co.uk/

As bandleader my Public Liability from the MU does hold up for the whole band with Tonbridge Malling District Council who I work for. And no one else has quibbled when asked about P. L. I. when I say I'm covered. Pete Lay
Hi Fred, reference Jeff Matthews' enquiry re indemnity insurance to cover bands rather than individuals; if he contacts Priestley and Partners at Hale Brook house, Scott Drive, Altrincham WA15 8AB; Tel 0161 929 7100; e-mail email@example.com, we found them very helpful. Currently our insurance is brokered through them with AXA.
Hi Fred, I use Brass Band Insurance Services 020 8759 0825 who do a combined instruments and public liability policy.
