Tasks included will be:

  • Providing audiences with guidance and information.
  • Welcoming artists, showing them to their dressing rooms and performance venues.
  • Completing evaluation questionnaires with audiences and following up with data collection and inputting e.g.. Audience numbers.
  • Content creation for social media.

Refreshments and support will be available for all volunteer shifts.
