Some councils may require you take out insurance, usually as part of your road closure application or just to ensure they are indemnified. If you are planning an event in public space we advise you to cover yourself, here are some tips how:
1. Ask your insurance provider if you can extend your current home insurance to an event – this is often only a little bit extra.
2. Hold your Street Feast in a venue that already has insurance.
3. Contact your local Resident Association or like-minded community groups. They generally have insurance and, if you link in with them and see if they can get involved, they are often happy to incorporate you under their policy.
4. Each year we try to get a group discount for Street Feasters to secure Public Liability Insurance. Once we have the 2019 scheme in place we will be in touch.
