Mansfield Palace Theatre appeals for volunteers

Posted onPosted on 17th May

Mansfield Palace Theatre is looking for friendly people with a passion for theatre and the arts to become Welcome Volunteers.

The theatre welcomes more than 120,000 local people every year to enjoy comedy, music, family shows and the annual pantomime.

Welcome volunteers are expected to greet audiences with a smile, help direct them to their seats, and keep an eye on the audience during a show. During the interval volunteers are expected be making sure everywhere is tidy and helping customers if they need any support.

The theatre said: “Ideally, you’d be able to offer a regular amount of time each week and in exchange we offer training and the opportunity to see some fabulous shows.

“All Welcome Volunteers will receive a full training programme, and you’ll join our wonderful team who are dedicated to giving local people great nights out in Mansfield.

“Typical volunteering shifts are between 6.30pm and 10pm, usually Tuesday to Saturday. Sometimes there are Sunday performances, and we also have occasional afternoon shows (1pm to 4.30pm).”

The benefits of volunteering include receiving a volunteer card giving free admission to some performances (subject to availability), a uniform provided for use when on duty, free tea and coffee when on duty, full training programme, and free Mansfield District Council car parking pass.

The next Welcome Volunteer Open Day will take place on Monday, 20th June, from 2.30pm to 6.30pm to fit around any existing commitments potential volunteers may have. Fill in the application at

Call 01623 412951 or meet the theatre team at the Four Seasons Shopping Centre, Mansfield, on Saturday, 18th June to find out more.
