Can Bonfires and Fireworks Be Insured?

Bonfires are a central element of Bonfire Night, but can they be insured? The answer is both yes and no, depending on the context.

Yes: If you are hosting a public event or a large private gathering with a significant bonfire, it’s wise to consider Bonfire Insurance. This type of insurance can protect you in case of accidents or damage caused by the bonfire. Vento Insurance offers this coverage as part of our comprehensive Bonfire Night insurance, ensuring that you have peace of mind when organising large bonfires.

No, Personal Bonfires at Home: If you are planning a small bonfire in your garden for personal enjoyment, it’s unlikely that you’ll need a separate insurance policy specifically for the bonfire itself. However, it’s crucial to follow safety guidelines and ensure that your bonfire doesn’t pose any risks to your property or your neighbours.

Do I Need Insurance for Fireworks and Bonfire Night?

Now, let’s address the question of whether you need insurance for Bonfire Night and fireworks displays. The answer depends on your role and the scale of your involvement in Bonfire Night celebrations.

Event Organisers: If you are responsible for organising a public Bonfire Night event or fireworks display, insurance is not just recommended; it’s essential. Vento Insurance offers specialised Bonfire Night and Fireworks Insurance designed to cover event organisers in case of accidents, injuries, or property damage during the event. This insurance is your safety net, ensuring that you can celebrate without worrying about unexpected financial burdens.

Homeowners: If you are hosting a private Bonfire Night gathering at your home, your existing homeowner’s insurance policy should provide coverage for accidents or damage that may occur on your property. However, it’s advisable to review your policy and consult with your insurance provider to confirm that you have adequate coverage for special events like Bonfire Night.

Spectators: As a spectator attending a public Bonfire Night event, you typically don’t need a separate insurance policy. Event organisers are responsible for ensuring the safety of attendees and are usually required to have their own insurance to cover any unforeseen incidents.

What Happens If My Fireworks Display Is Cancelled?

Sometimes, despite meticulous planning, a fireworks display may need to be cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances, most commonly due to bad weather. This can be disappointing, but it’s essential to know what steps to take and whether your investment is protected.

Event Organisers: If you are an event organiser, having the right insurance in place is crucial if you need to cancel a fireworks display. Vento Insurance offers cancellation insurance specifically for fireworks. This means that if your event is cancelled due to adverse weather, technical issues, or other unforeseen reasons, you can recover your costs and minimise financial losses.

Ticket Holders: If you’ve purchased tickets to a Bonfire Night event and it gets cancelled, you may be entitled to a refund or an alternative date for the event, depending on the event organiser’s policies. Some event organisers may have their own cancellation insurance to protect ticket holders. Check the terms and conditions when purchasing tickets to understand your rights and options.
