Volunteering at Royal & Derngate

Get involved with your local theatre by becoming a volunteer. If you would like to support the Front of House team working as an usher in one of our auditoria, we welcome all ages and all levels of ability. While these are all unpaid positions, we can provide a safe and welcoming working environment, on the job training, friendship and a lot of fun.

For more details on how to become a volunteer, please email our Senior Duty Manager Rudi Gibbins.
