Get Involved at Shaftesbury Arts Centre

Fancy being a volunteer?

It's a great way to meet people, be at the heart of something amazing, and to enjoy new experiences.

We rely solely on volunteers to manage every aspect of the Arts Centre, from set building to selling tickets, and from make-up to maintenance.

If you've got a little time, and would like to meet new people, and get involved in any way, pop into the Arts Centre and have a chat with someone, or complete the volunteering form at the bottom of this page, or drop an email to: contact@shaftesburyartscentre.org.uk

We're always looking for people to help us front of house, backstage and in the general running of the Arts Centre – so there's something to suit everyone.

Production volunteers

At the moment, we're looking for people to help us with all the essential behind the scenes activities. You can download factsheets here that give some more information about some of the areas you could get involved in.
