Lancaster Arts Volunteers

Volunteers are vital members of the Lancaster Arts team. They contribute in many ways and share our love of music, theatre and the arts.

Our volunteers enjoy a sense of being part of an organisation with roots in the University and local community and with a national reputation for high standards of quality and innovation.

Volunteers also have the opportunity to meet and socialise with like-minded people and see all of our productions.

Our volunteers are supported in their own professional development though an annual series of optional training and networking events. We encourage all volunteers to attend these sessions to get the most out of their time with Lancaster Arts.

Volunteers are encouraged to get involved with all aspects of Lancaster Arts work and all volunteers are invited to apply for one of our Ambassador Roles.

Are you a Lancaster University student? Find out more about the benefits of doing the Lancaster Award with us.

There are two main ways to get involved with Lancaster Arts, either as a Theatre and Concerts Volunteer or Gallery Volunteer. You are welcome to apply for both roles, though both roles have slightly different focuses.  Find out more and how to apply by clicking below: Theatre and Concerts Volunteers | Gallery Volunteers. All Lancaster Arts volunteers need to sign-up to a minimum of two front of house shifts at the gallery desk every month.

Contact Alix Medlyn Davies for a casual conversation about the roles or to enquire about becoming a Lancaster Arts volunteer. To apply please download an application form.
