The Council for British Archaeology (CBA) offers free contingent public liability insurance, product’s liability insurance and employer’s liability insurance cover to organisers and properties taking part in the CBA Festival of Archaeology.

The CBA Festival of Archaeology insurance cover is provided by Towergate Insurance Brokers.  

To qualify, event organisers must have registered as taking part in the CBA Festival of Archaeology 2023 and appear on the Festival website. You must also have a safeguarding policy in place and have completed a risk assessment. As part of the event submission process you will be asked to confirm you have these in place. Further help and advice on safeguarding and risk assessments is available in the Event Organisers Materials

Please note it is not possible for us to insure any events that include the use of weapons (e.g. re-enactments) or where food is cooked as part of a re-enactment and given to the public. In these instances event organisers will need to provide their own insurance cover for their Festival event.  

The insurance form will be available nearer to the Festival period.

If you have any questions about insurance for your event please contact us at [email protected]
