Event Insurance – Covid-19 DEADLINE

The government recently provided financial backing to allow event organisers to purchase COVID-19 cancellation insurance for their events https://www.sutcliffeinsurance.co.uk/news/covid-event-cancellation-insurance/

The scheme states that cover must be purchased at least 8 weeks before the event, however a grace period was given up until 23.59 on 15th December 2021, where this rule does not apply. Therefore, if you have an event planned between 16th December and 10th February and you are concerned about covid you need to purchase this cover before midnight on 15th December. If you have events planned after 10th February you need to make sure you purchase the cover at least 8 weeks in advance.

If you would like to insure your event against covid cancellation or if you require any other help or advice regarding event insurance please email Enquiries@sutcliffeinsurance.co.uk or call 01905 21681.
