We can offer several protections and covers under our Street Party policy.

Our four key covers are Public Liability, Employers Liability, Event Equipment Insurance, and Event Cancellation Insurance, the latter is looked at on a case by case basis and is only available on request.

Each of these can cover various problems which could occur if you and your fellow residents are organising a street party

Public Liability

This is our most requested cover. It is a cover often taken out to satisfy the needs of your local authority or the highways authority should you be looking to close your road.

What we cover

Under our Public liability, we cover accidental bodily injury which occurs to a member of the public, or accidental damage to third party property, if it is proven to be as a result of your negligence in connection with how you have organised or managed the event.

The policy will respond to pay damages, claimants costs and expenses as well as offering defence costs. 

Public liability can be in place when you are setting up and have taken occupation of your street, as well as when your event commences.

Things we don’t cover

  • Property damage claims which are under £250, as this is the excess of the policy.


  • Damage or injuries which arise out of a deliberate act, vandalism or is malicious in nature


  • Loss or damage to property which you own, have hired or which you are borrowing or holding in trust.


  • Damage to the ground or underground services.


  • Damage to property or injuries caused by a Dangerous activity; such as the use of inflatables, projectiles, fireworks.


  • Liability from the driving vehicles (this includes peddle, gravity or mechanically propelled things like soap boxes, bicycles or go-karts as well as cars).  


Employers Liability

Employers Liability is potentially relevant if you have any volunteers, helpers of employees who are working at your event and fall outside of the organising committee. Most Street Parties are organised by the residents, however should you feel you need it; we can offer it.

What we cover

Under our Employers Liability, we provide cover for your legal liability to pay damages, claimants costs and expenses which arise as a result of an injury to anyone you employ at your event including temporary staff, volunteers or helpers. It doesn’t matter whether they are paid or unpaid however, they must be under your control and supervision at the time they sustain an injury.

Things we don’t cover

  • Any liability in respect of, or arising from a road traffic accidents.


  • The employees of any professional contractor or sub-contractor whose services you are employing; the company you are hiring should have their own cover in place. For example, professional security services, caterers or first aiders.

Event Equipment Insurance

Event Equipment relates to items which you are bringing to or hiring for the event which do not come as part of the fixtures of fittings of the venue.

What we cover

Our cover provides accidental damage, loss or theft cover for the event equipment you are legally responsible for (i.e. hired, leased or owned) throughout the duration of the event. 

Things we don’t cover

  • Losses where the repair or replacement of the equipment is under £250 because this is the excess of the policy.


  • Theft where there is no forcible or violent entry or exit from any site; or where items have been left unattended and unsecured.


  • Damage arising from the faulty erection, use or dismantlement of temporary structures; for example, Marquees, stages or lighting rigs.


  • Damage caused by deliberate acts, wilful or malicious damage.

Event Cancellation Insurance

Organising an event can prove to be a costly and it is becoming increasingly common for people to look to try to recover their costs if the event they are organising or attending was forced to cancel.

What we cover

Our standard cover provides over for your irrecoverable costs incurred as a result of the unavoidable cancellation, abandonment or postponement of your event for reasons beyond your control.

We also offer extensions to include Cancellation because of adverse weather conditions, which is not offered as standard.

Other circumstances which you are not covered for

  • The failure of a key supplier where your booking arrangements are not confirmed in writing.


  • Any situation which you are aware of, before you take out the insurance, which could be expected to or are likely to cause your event to cancel. This can include medical conditions, the current condition of the venue or the known financial troubles of a supplier.


  • We cannot offer any weather related protection if you are looking to take out a policy within fourteen days of the date your event setup starts.


  • If local authority or highways agency permissions are not agreed in time as a result of you not making all necessary applications in a timely manner.


If you are ever unsure about the coverage of the policy you can give us a call to discuss if your event or activity is something we can insure.

A full list of Dangerous Activities is listed within our policy wording.

Our Policy wording also details all our exclusions and what we mean by certain terms. It is important that you read this before you opt to take out insurance with us to ensure that you are adequately covered for your event and that our insurance policy meetings your needs.
