Hello Jeff I have come to this a bit late but 2 things spring to mind on your problem first a good broker will talk you through what you will need secondly I am not sure but you may need a risk assessment for the broker to get you his best price also as i always try to talk to the people at the venue as they may have people they recommend who know the building
again I know it may be too late to help
Thanks for reply.
I tried Swinton and a local broker. Both either didn't want to bother or didn't know of a suitable policy. I suppose there wouldn't be much commission for them.
Risk assessment? Sounds a bit heavy to show about 30 paintings/photos for 3 days a week for 6 weeks.
Other venues seem to include our liability in their insurance. But ignorance may have been bliss when I put up framed and glazed photos in licensed premises!
Anyhow the group has agreed to go with SAA by direct debit at a cost of £50.And finally who knows of venues in Lancashire for amateur photographer/artist exhibitions where exhibits are for sale? We need to get value for the insurance premium )
