Volunteer for the Civic

We are a very small team and simply couldn't manage without the help of our volunteers.  We are keen to hear from anyone who would like to volunteer for us, whatever your availability or abilities. 

We can offer you the chance to be a part of a great team, free tickets to shows, free training and much more.  We have lots of roles available and appreciate any help.

  • Front of House & Box Office - Assist audience members with ticket enquiries, show audience members to their seats, hand out programmes, help during the interval or help to clear up at the end. 

  • Costume, Prop & Set Making - If you love being creative or are perhaps a whizz with a sewing machine, this role would be for you! It might be sewing on buttons or making Papier-mâché tortoises, whenever we have an in-house show, we need help!

  • General Handyperson - Fixing things, a little bit of decorating, hanging photos - we would love to have someone to help us with all our odd jobs.

  • Chaperones - Helping to look after the children who are a part of a show during youth productions, ensuring their safety and well-being.  This role requires paperwork and a DBS check (provided by us). 

  • Run a Community Club - If you have a passion for something and would love to start a community club, we can provide you with the assistance needed to get it going. 

  • Poster Distribution - If you love walking and live locally this would be ideal.  Taking our posters and leaflets to local shops and cafes helps with promotion.

  • Join the Board - Be a part of the charity board that oversees the work that the Civic management team do.  Help make vital decisions about the direction of the Civic.

If you would like to volunteer for us, please send us an email or pop in to see us.
