Volunteers help us achieve everything that we do. You don't need any previous experience, just a willingness and ability to commit your time.
For 2017 we are especially looking for volunteers who are able to help at the Barton Hill Festival.
The Barton Hill Festival is a free community Festival we are running with partners Barton Hill Settlement and Up Our Street on Sunday 29th October. We will need lots of volunteers to make this special day happen. Roles will include stewarding, assisting with workshops, serving refreshments, setting and up and clearing up and maybe performing.
We also 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.
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 are interested in volunteering for Travelling Light, please complete our Volunteer Expression of Interest Form and return it to Ali Sully, Office Manager, on firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Ali for more information.
