Posted:quote:Hello Home of Poi Peeps,

Just letting you know that Equity (UK) are trying to put a cheap fire public liability scheme together. To do that they might do a block insurence thing but they need a certain number of fire people to say that they are interested. Just though you might be able to pass this on to your members to let them know. If interested they should contact:

Michael Day on: +44 (0) 2076700235 e-mail: mday@equity.org.uk

The more they get the cheaper it will be. Even if you are not an equity member get in touch.

However joining equity is a good idea since there are many other benefits: personal insurance, legal help, union backing etc.

Cheers, Peachi

Posted:That is very good news indeed. Thanks for the heads-up.

There is a slight possibility that I am not actually right all of the time.

I think that Equity are THINKING about it. Not doing it right now....also, you have to be a member of equity and there are certian requirements (invoices/contracts from previous and upcoming gigs etc)...

Posted:I can't get insurance because I'm a resident in the Rebublic. You have to be a resident in the UK to be insured by any of the UK companies like CMIB or Equity, there's one company in Ireland who tend to insure other performers and I was in touch with them and they won't touch me because of the word (you know the 4 lettered one...starts with F).

I'm been in contact with pretty much every performer in Dublin and none of them have their own insurance. They have the venue expand their insurance to cover them instead.....

I've already lost 2 gigs in the last year because of this and that's not counting the amount I might have got had I been insured and actively looking for work....

I really don't know what else to do at this stage. I could lie and use my mothers address in England but it defeats the purpose of having insurance doesn't it... I spose I could move over there
