Hi guys- as some of you have heard my wife and I are dipping our toes in the water this season- partly as traders, partly as demonstrators/ entertainers- she the storyteller me the pyrotechnician however not sure on best option for insurance- covered for performing and all my pyro stuff but not specifically trading- I assume I will need seperate insurance for this? Not doing many shows this season as trader- 2 maybe 3 as traders any ideas on best approach here?

Check out the 'craftsman policy' from Ian Wallace insurance, they cover me for trading, (including online sales which NMTF didnt), teaching and demonstrating and put a clause in for me to allow me to use open fires whilst still beihg covered

about a hundred quid last year, think it will be a bit more this year though. Its pinned on first and foremost on being a 'maker and seller of crafts' but they are happy to expand it to include teaching, costumed demos etc

Have you tried National Market Traders Association? They have an historic traders branch.
