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. At Ludlow Assembly Rooms we proudly have 120 active volunteers who's generosity enables a modest staff and budget to cover all our activities. 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.


We offer

  • Guidance finding the volunteer role that best matches your skills and time you can offer us
  • Full training and support as you take up your new role
  • The opportunity to enhance your cv with broader work experience
  • The chance to widen your circle of friends by joining a friendly team
  • The satisfaction of making a contribution to the community


Volunteers cover many roles at the Assembly Rooms; we welcome any skills or experience you can share. You can use the Expression of Interest form here to help decide which one to explore further; here you will also find some of our volunteers explain why they find their roles so fulfilling.  Just complete and return the form - I will arrange to meet you and discuss the volunteer role/s that appeal to you most.


Currently, we are eager to recruit volunteers in the following roles:

  • Box Office Volunteers (Role Description here

  • A Role Description aims to show the work involved, the skill set you may need and time commitment required, as well as the training and support we can offer you.  I can arrange for you to shadow an existing volunteer to give you a taste of what’s involved.

I hope we can welcome you to the volunteer team soon and look forward to hearing from you.
