This Insurance is to cover your irrecoverable financial losses due to the cancellation, abandonment, postponement, interruption, curtailment or relocation of any type of indoor or outdoor event due to unforeseen circumstances which are outside of your control.
If the disruption of an event due to the illness of key performer, damage to the venue, travel delays, failure of public utilities, adverse weather etc. would have serious financial implications for you then you should consider protecting yourself with a Contingency (Cancellation & Non-Appearance) Insurance.
The unexpected death of HRH Princess Diana in 1997 meant that many events were cancelled, abandoned or postponed as a mark of respect. West End theatres closed their doors and cancelled performances on the day of her funeral and producers successfully claimed for their financial losses under their Contingency (Cancellation & Non-Appearance) Insurances.
The 7/7 attacks on the London transport network meant that the Police and other emergency services advised the Public not to travel into London unless absolutely necessary. Further, the transport network was seriously disrupted making it impossible for some performers, crew, other key company members to physically get to the theatres. Many West End theatres closed their doors and cancelled performances and producers successfully claimed for their financial losses under their Contingency (Cancellation & Non-Appearance) Insurances.
Performances of a play were unable to be fulfilled due to the outbreak of a virus which incapacitated several members of the performing company on a matinee day. There were insufficient understudies to cover the roles of the incapacitated performers and consequently, two performances were cancelled. The performances were able to be rescheduled for the end of the run and the producers successfully claimed for the costs of staging the rescheduled performances under their Contingency (Cancellation & Non-Appearance) Insurance.
