In 1995 Performers was formed as the entertainment division of the Wrightsure Insurance Group to cater for the needs of clients, who at the time were experiencing very difficult times obtaining insurance for the Entertainment industry. Today we look after 750+ clients ranging from the smallest community dance group to the largest regional producing theatre and among our clients we count producers, theatres, touring theatre companies, cinemas, festival organisers, arts centres, dance companies, multimedia companies, opera companies and other charity and not-for-profit organisations working in the Arts. Performers is proud to be recommended by the Independent Theatre Council ‘ITC’.
We have our own exclusive schemes underwritten in-house plus access to all the major Theatre & Arts insurers so quotations are usually provided within 24 hours plus cover can be arranged the same day. Due to the nature of the industry we understand that annual insurance is not always required and you may just wish to insure a production or tour.
With this in mind, we have packages to suit any period of cover from 1 day to 12 months plus we have special arrangements in place to cover Vehicle insurance for short periods of time.
Our Schemes are aimed at:
Touring Theatre Companies
Dance Schools and Workshops
Drama Schools and Workshops
Light & Sound Technicians
Community Arts Projects
Arts based charities / Not for Profit Organisations
Self Employed Performers
