The council is not responsible and will not accept liability for any loss, damage, injury or death howsoever, and by whomsoever caused, whether to property or person(s) sustained by any person in the venue.
The hirer is responsible for all safety aspects of the venue prior to, during or subsequent to the event and must accept liability for any loss, damage, injury or death howsoever, and by whomsoever caused, whether to property or person(s) sustained by any person(s) in the venue.
The hirer agrees to indemnify the council against all claims, actions, demands, proceedings, cost or awards in respect of any loss, damage, injury or death to persons or property engaged by or assisting the hirer.
The hirer agrees to take out public liability insurance cover or third party risks (including products liability where appropriate) for a minimum of £5 million (five million pounds) and produce evidence of such insurance. Higher levels of cover may be required for some events as specified by the head of service.
The hirer will be required to produce evidence of the existence of public liability insurance at such level as required by the council in respect of any exhibitor, ground entertainer, sub-contractor, and caterer which the hirer has instructed or authorised to appear at the event.
Failure to provide proof of insurance cover as required under clauses 17.4 and 17.5 prior to the due date will lead to cancellation of the event.
