Volunteering

We are always on the lookout for new volunteers to join our team.

All that is required is a friendly nature and the time to help us!

There are two types of volunteers at the theatre:

  • Volunteers in our Front of House team, who man the box office, the bar and the coffee bar.
  • Technical volunteers to run the state of the art equipment including master- minding the sound and lighting needed for stage performances.

As a volunteer, you will be able to choose when you want to work in the theatre – there is no obligation to do so regularly.  Most volunteers work perhaps two or three times in a month although some do much more!  (Of course, the majority of our events are in the evenings and on Fridays and Saturdays.)

Benefits for volunteers include:

  • Free entry to an event when you are on duty
  • Free tea and coffee
  • Half price drinks at the bar
  • Two free tickets each four month season for another event at the theatre

If you would like to join our team, please contact me - Alan Hutchinson.  I will then arrange to meet you at a time to suit when the theatre is open (probably on a Friday or Saturday).  I will show you round, explain how the systems work and arrange a time and date for you to attend to observe the theatre in action before you actually start as a volunteer.

In addition, please don’t hesitate to contact me by phone or email in advance if you have any further preliminary questions.

I look forward to meeting you.
