Volunteer

Join our Award-winning Team of Volunteers!

Volunteering at the Regal Theatre is a unique experience where you could be part of an amazing theatre in the heart of your local community.

In 2020 our dedicated team of Regal Volunteers were awarded the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service, the highest award a voluntary group can receive in the UK.

We can offer a wide variety of exciting volunteering roles to match your specific skills or take the opportunity to learn something completely new with a friendly and supportive team. From Front of House, the Bar, Box Office, Technical Team or backstage with productions. Certain roles mean you could work from home if that was your preference, such as Marketing, Finance, Press and Publicity.

You can find more information about current roles below, and If anything is of interest then please, complete our Volunteer Registration Form at the bottom of the page or available from the Box Office or email us at [email protected]
