Due to an overwhelming number of recent applicants, we are currently not accepting further applications to be a volunteer.
Volunteers are important members of the Lichfield Garrick team who share a love of theatre and give freely of their time to contribute to the development and wellbeing of the theatre.
Our volunteers enjoy a sense of being a part of our organisation which has deep roots in the local community and which has a national reputation for high standards of quality and innovation.
Volunteers also have the opportunity to meet and socialise with like-minded people and watch our productions when on duty
What do Volunteers do?
Lichfield Garrick volunteers work alongside our operational staff within the Front of House Department and provide support and assistance during our performances.
Volunteers have real responsibilities and we rely on them to offer outstanding customer care to our audiences. It is important that all of our volunteers have the aptitude, personality and confidence to provide this.
How much time is required?
Volunteers may attend as often as they wish and it is therefore important that availability is known months in advance in order for a rota to be produced. If preferred, a regular night can be requested and we will do our best to accommodate this. We do request that Volunteers attend at least once every two weeks in order to maintain the levels of training and experience.
Appearance is important to the impression we portray to our audience members at the Garrick. All volunteers are expected to wear smart black clothing - this isn't supplied by the theatre.
Please note, we can only offer voluntary work during our shows. Outside performance times there are generally no voluntary opportunities available.
All volunteers must be at least 16 years of age.
