If you’re running your own event, there is no legal requirement for you to take out Public Liability Insurance. However, you may wish to do this as it means you will be covered if anyone injures themselves at your event.
It is worth asking any supplier you hire for your event to present their Public Liability Insurance certificate too.
If you’re preparing and cooking food for the public as part of your event, you need to make sure this is done safely. The Food Standards Agency provides some useful guidelines on this. You can find out more here.
If using a caterer for your event, make sure they have a Food Hygiene Certificate and Public Liability Insurance.
When handling food and drink at an event, please ensure you have the correct dietary and allergy information from your guests.
