Whether you would like arts industry experience or would simply like to meet new people – we have volunteering opportunities to suit all.

Join the Civic family and help us on the way to becoming the leading combined arts centre in the North of England.

The majority of our volunteer roles are visitor-facing and duties may include engaging visitors to The Civic in conversation about our venue and artistic programme. All volunteers will receive training about the venue and the events at which they will attend. We are always looking for people who are passionate about theatre, dance or visual arts. We hope that volunteers will develop increased confidence and communication skills.

If you think that you would like to develop other practical skills, or you think that you may have skills that would benefit The Civic, then there may also be additional volunteering opportunities behind the scenes; either in the gallery, in our marketing team or at our community events.

We may be able to develop other volunteer opportunities based around your interests, skills and any aspirations or any skills you wish to develop.
