Volunteer With Us

Volunteer Ushers are key members of the FOH team, staffing the public areas of the building during events and productions. They perform duties such as ticket checking/scanning, monitoring performances and most importantly, ensuring each of our visitors has a good night out. The role includes health and safety duties such as aiding evacuation of our audience during an emergency.

We need people with a pleasant manner, enthusiasm, a willingness to follow instruction and plenty of commitment. We need our stewards to commit to at least two shifts per calendar month. Shifts vary from afternoon, evening and weekend and you are free to choose your own shifts. We provide front of house training and ongoing support.

Our volunteers learn new skills, meet new friends and get to watch our shows for free (to name just a few benefits). Download our Volunteer Usher Information Pack to find out more…
