Lancaster Arts Volunteers

Our creative development programmes are a central part of what we do at Lancaster Arts. Whether you’d like to try something different and meet new people, or develop existing skills and enhance your C.V, we aim to provide opportunities for everyone that are interesting, rewarding and distinctive. 

Our volunteers contribute in many ways and share our love of music, theatre and the arts. Volunteers play a key role in the running of Lancaster Arts' programmes, and in supporting projects devised and delivered by Lancaster Arts. Each volunteer position offers a unique insight into the workings of an established arts venue, and provides a hands-on introduction to the range of roles within the organisation. It is an opportunity to develop a range of transferable skills, receive specialised training, and access valuable developmental opportunitie
