How to: Get Insured

Insurance is never the first thing you think about  when producing a show - however EVERY SHOW performing at Brighton Fringe needs it, boring as it might be, without it you really do put yourself and others at massive risk the minute you set foot in a venue, or indeed start rehearsing in other spaces or locations.

Join the experts from Brighton Fringe’s preferred supplier, encoreinsure.com to find out: Who needs cover? What is adequate cover? What happens if you don’t have insurance? And about the special Brighton Fringe offer available to our participants.
