Volunteer Open Morning

Come along for a coffee and a chat to hear about volunteering opportunites with us. Meet staff and other volunteers from across the theatre.

On Saturday 24 September from 11am we will be holding an open morning for anyone who might be interested in volunteering at the theatre. There will be an opportunity to listen to a very brief presentation about the opportunities available and then chat with other staff and volunteers over a drink.   

If you would like to come along please complete the form below and we will send you more details. If you have any questions in the meantime please contact us by phone 01729 893180 or email

We are enhancing opportunities to assist across the theatre, but we mostly need volunteers to work as part of our front of house setup on event dates. Generally, our Front of House Volunteers sit in on performances, meaning you get to watch whatever is on for free! All our volunteers are also entitled to two complimentary tickets each theatre season.

For all roles, training is provided, so no experience is necessary - just a willingness to help us out. Here’s what some of our current crop have said about their experience with us:

“Volunteering gives me access to things I really want to see, as well as introducing me to new shows.”

“It’s great to work alongside a team of such enthusiastic volunteers.”

“It’s a fabulous community resource and I enjoy putting something back into the community.”
