About

Part of a family-run group of businesses established over 130 years ago; Eggar Forrester Creative has a team of brokers who are committed to providing bespoke solutions to those working in the Entertainment, Media, Music, Film, Photography and TV industries.

“With a personal passion for the arts, I have always been aware just how vibrant the creative sector is in the UK, and felt that we would have something to offer. All too often, I hear of people who took out cover only to find that the fine detail didn’t work in their favour when disaster struck. Usually this is down to a failure of communication, which is an area we work on very hard, and which should be so straightforward. Our mission is to provide complete peace of mind to our clients so that they can confidently focus their energies on what they do best”.
