Blenheim’s Contingency account provides non-appearance and event cancellation insurance, particularly for entertainment and music related risks. These range from small, local events to large worldwide rock and pop tours.

Business is written both on a full value and a layered basis to provide cover to artists, agents, promoters, producers, venue owners and a range of others who would suffer financial loss were a production or event to be rescheduled, abandoned or cancelled.
