The Arts Development UK Insurance Scheme

The Arts Development UK Insurance Scheme

The Arts Development UK Insurance Scheme offers preferential rates on La Playa's Arts & Entertainment policies, specialist insurance for the arts. 

The Arts Development UK has teamed up with specialist insurance broker La Playa to help protect their members from spiralling insurance premiums, inadequate cover and expensive duplications from maintaining multiple non specialist policies.

Members Benefits:

La Playa provides:

  • Comprehensive cover, tailor-made for the arts
  • A broker who understands your organisation
  • Expert professional advice
  • First class service & claims handling

Are you shipshape with the new pension regulations?
The Government's new Pension Laws have come into force, and will significantly impact every employer in the UK - even those with a single employee. 

If you're wondering: How much will I have to pay? Are my existing arrangements acceptable? How does this affect my freelance and contract workers? What is "auto-enrolment"? Then get in touch for a FREE initial pension consultation.

The arts, by nature, involve some major implications for insurance, and many non-specialist insurers have fixed (and inaccurate) ideas about the industry. Often they charge high premiums to protect themselves against the perceived high costs of cancellation, temperamental artists, unsociable hours and “high-risk” activities.

We can also arrange:

  • Cancellation Insurance 
    Cancellation cover replaces lost revenue and reimburses expenditure incurred from an event which is necessarily and unavoidably postponed, abandoned, cancelled, curtailed or relocated in circumstances beyond your control. For artist managers, it can protect commission income streams for high-earning performers. More >>
  • Cyber Liability Insurance
    Your current insurance coverage may not protect against the special risks that accompany your forays into the online space. Cyber Liability cover can provide protection against the new risks that come with this continually developing technology. More >>
  • Trustee Liability Insurance
    Protecting your Board against allegations of mismanagement or breach of duty. More >>
  • Business Travel
    Worldwide cover for up to 6 months per trip.
  • Professional Indemnity Insurance
    Protects you against allegations of negligence, breach of duty or mismanagement. More >>
