Swindon Theatres are looking for volunteer ushers to join their front-of-house teams at the Wyvern Theatre and Swindon Arts Centre.

Those wondering what it takes to run the variety of different shows at their local Swindon theatre are now being offered the chance to find out. 

Swindon Theatres is looking for individuals wishing to volunteer at either the Wyvern Theatre or Swindon Arts Centre.

A spokesperson for the current team said: "Volunteering is your chance to experience the secret side of theatre, all while enjoying some amazing shows and making new friends.

"Whether you’re looking for a way to get out and meet new, likeminded people, or you’re searching for the perfect way to improve your confidence and customer service skills to enhance your CV, the benefits of volunteering are truly endless.

"Having celebrated the Wyvern’s 50th birthday in September 2021, the coming year promises to bring a spectacular programme of live events to Swindon. From David Walliams’ brilliant Billionaire Boy in February to the iconic Rocky Horror Show in March, through to the West-End smash-hit SIX The Musical in October, there is a wonderful variety of shows to get involved with."

Current Swindon Theatres usher, Nessa Denman, said: “Ushering for Swindon Theatres is a highly rewarding experience. Volunteering is an ideal opportunity for me to support the wider community and utilise my skills, as a valued member of an amazing team.”
