We’re planning to release sky lanterns (Chinese lanterns) at our event: does our insurance cover us?

Q:

We're planning to release sky lanterns at the end of our Christmas Fair. Would we be covered by our membership-linked insurance?

A:

This is very likely to be considered a hazardous activity under the policy and so we would need to refer it to the insurer. Before doing this, we will need to know more about the event, including where and when it will be held and how near it is to third party property, but please be aware this is unlikely to be covered. Please contact us to discuss this.
