Why volunteer?

Whether you are looking to make new friends, learn new skills or want to help out our local community arts centre, there are a range of possible ways to volunteer your time with us. We are always grateful to anyone who offer us their spare time to help us out, as a charity we rely on your friendly support to keep the place running.

However, if you have any skills you can offer, even if not on this list, we would love to hear from you. You can download our volunteer application form here.

 

Stewarding

We currently have enough stewards and are not recruiting for this position. This situation may change however so please visit us to check again.

 

Front of House

A Super Steward who gets shows started on time, makes sure that intervals don't overrun and deals with any customer issues that arise. The role includes liaising with stewards to make a plan of who is doing what, and the technician to make sure that the show starting times and other aspects are running smoothly. Anyone interested in volunteering for Front of House would be fully trained until completely comfortable with the role.  

 

Box Office

We are seeking volunteers to assist on Box Office, ideally able to commit to 1 shift per week (generally around 4 hours). Training will be given but it is essential that you are computer literate. 


Occasional distribution

We are looking for a volunteer to do occasional distribution runs, putting up posters and flyers around Ludlow at pubs or other venues, e.g. doctor's surgeries, clinics etc. Distribution runs are usually required about once every other month.

 

Event Organising with the Friends

If you are interested in helping to put on events and activities to raise money for Ludlow Assembly Rooms, please contact Christine on 01584 813704

There is no need to join any committee - ideas and passion are all that is needed.

 

Technical

If you are technically minded, why not join the Tech team? Helping to put on live events offers plenty of scope for learning about the technical aspects of putting on a show - lighting and sound for example - and full training will be given.

 

Facilities

There are always plenty of ways to help around the building, for example painting, minor carpentry, etc.

 

Administration

If you like office work and can help with general administration (photocopying, collating, folding, mail outs etc) come and join our friendly office team. 

 

Work experience for teens

We are always delighted to welcome young volunteers. We are also a very popular placement for work experience students - there's a wide range of work to experience, and the office atmosphere is great fun. If you would like to do your work experience here, be sure to let your school know as soon as possible to maximise your chance of getting one of the limited number of placements.

 

Work experience for adults

If you have holiday time to fill in, or you'd like to explore possible career avenues, or you need to enhance your CV, volunteering could be the solution. Check out these opportunities and give us a call!
