'...we'll protect your organisation to let you focus on the artistic side'

Our expert team provides tailor-made insurance & financial advice for performing arts organisations including opera companies, orchestras, festivals, venues, dance schools and studios, and promoters. 

Our exclusive portfolio policies are designed to provide the best possible cover while streamlining costs by placing multiple risks under a single 'umbrella' contract.  We work closely with trade associations to keep clients ahead of the game in managing their risk as the industry evolves and changes: the British Arts Festivals Association, the Association of Festival Organisers, the Association of British Orchestras and the International Artist Managers Association.

We'll take time to establish a realistic understanding of the risks you face.  We'll support you with advice on managing those risks, and negotiate the best possible terms with insurers. 

"I found the service provided by Paula very welcoming and helpful. Feeling very uncertain about our needs and requirements meant I was a little nervous about the whole process, but Paula was very patient and explained everything simply and slowly."
