The theatre simply wouldn’t be here without the tireless help and support of a very dedicated team of volunteers. The theatre always welcomes new volunteers so please do get in touch if you’d like to join the team.
Opportunities are available for front of house and bar duties, with relevant training offered. While any skills and experience you bring with you will be appreciated, no specific former experience is necessary. Volunteering at the theatre is a great way to meet like-minded people, increase your skills set, have fun and enjoy the great shows!
