Volunteers help us achieve everything that we do. You don't need any previous experience, just a willingness and ability to commit your time.
We have regular opportunities for people to help with our Youth Theatre, supporting the leader and assistant to run safe and exciting sessions. This is an evening commitment, usually for one night a week over the length of a term, and a really good way to see the heart of our operation.
If you are available during the daytime, we may well need some volunteers to help us deliver our in-school projects.
From time to time we will call for volunteers to help prepare smaller elements of our touring shows including things like cutting out paper leaves for HOW COLD MY TOES or making pompoms for SNOW MOUSE.
And once in a while we run large events like Barton Hill Festival, which we are organising with Up Our Street and Barton Hill Settlement. Events like this need a lot of help and give volunteers the chance to work together as a team. We will be announcing our call out for volunteers soon, so watch this space.
Our volunteers enjoy working with us and often gain valuable experience and contacts. But don't just take our word for it. This is what some of the volunteers we have worked with said:
“I enjoyed meeting lots of people involved with Travelling Light and being able to watch some performances too.”
“You get to work with lovely people, get involved with the community and see some shows too! Volunteering with Travelling Light is fun and inspiring!”
We ask for volunteers to be aged sixteen and over.
If you would like to find out more about volunteering for Travelling Light, please send your name, contact details and interests to Ali Sully, General Manager by email.
