    Hi,

    Yes you will need public liability insurance for the whole event, most venues ask for it.
    I'm also planning a craft fair and was quoted £250 for the day, the cost is less depending on the amount of public you think will turn up.
    I found my quote from a company from a google search, any way I hope this helps.

    P.S The company is called UK Commercial Ltd.

        Hello,

        You can get insurance from the National Market Traders Federation. I think it's about £70 for the year. You just join them and the insurance is included and you get various other benefits as well I think. All the info is on their website.

          Hi

          I too use Ian W Wallace for my craft club insurance & for my own insurance for my PartiCraft business - I'd definitely recommend them!

          Cheers

            Hi,
            I just want to clarify the info I gave for insurance is for organising an event and to cover a whole event.

            For personal insurance I would also recommend The National Market Traders Federation, by having this personal insurance it also opens doors if you want to pursue general markets.

                Hello

                I'm organising a craft fair and I'm on the hunt for insurance advice.
                In your opinion is it ok to expect the stallholders to have their own insurance? I have a friend who does fairs and she has her own.

                The building we are using has public liability. I have been reading the advice on the UKCFIS website but he didn't mention stallholders insuring themselves.

                This is a charity event for the Cubs and Scouts, they have very little money to play with so I'm hoping to avoid having to foot the insurance bill tho' I want to be sure everyone is well covered.

                I'm wondering, as our rate for tables is very cheap (£15) would that make expecting stallholders to insure themselves any more reasonable?

                I'll leave that one with all of you who seem to be well in the know!

                thanks :0)
