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 ages 16 years and above. 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 Customer Experience Manager Lorna Dawson at [email protected]

Due to popular demand you may be placed on a waiting list.

Work Experience Opportunities

Due to our ongoing closure due to COVID-19, we’re unable to offer any work experience placements at this time.
