What is Public Liability Insurance?

Public Liability Insurance is a type of insurance that covers the costs of any claims that members of the public make about incidents at your event.


Who needs it?

By law you don’t need to have public liability insurance, but if you are organising an event you may be held responsible for even small incidents, such as someone tripping over a laptop cable or spilling a hot drink on a member of the public. We would strongly advise that you look into getting this insurance for your event or activity and talk to an insurance company if you’re not sure.
