Live Events Reinsurance Scheme

The Live Events Reinsurance Scheme will support live events across the country, such as music festivals, conferences and business events that are at risk of being halted or delayed due to an inability to obtain COVID-19 cancellation insurance. Cover will be available to purchase alongside standard commercial events insurance for an additional premium.

This intervention will support the UK’s economic recovery from the COVID-19 crisis by giving events the confidence they need to plan for the future, whilst also ensuring that we deliver value for money for taxpayers.

The full scheme rules, as published by DCMS, can be found on the page the Guidance for Live Events Reinsurance Scheme .
