Volunteer With Us


Volunteering at Harrogate Theatre couldn’t be easier and there are lots of ways you can help. From becoming an usher to distributing posters, our volunteers play a much valued role in the running of the theatre.

Workshop Assistants

The Education Department are looking for some more voluntary Workshop Assistants to help with Youth Theatre. It is ideal for those who are looking to improve their C.V. with great experience for university, college or teaching applications, those looking to gain valuable experience of working with young people and theatre professionals and they will also gain credits enabling you to see shows for free and become an Assistant Director to Youth Theatre Productions.

Assistants need to be:

  • Be aged 16+.
  • Be available on Wednesday evenings during term time 5pm – 6.30pm.
  • Be willing to undergo a DBS check.
  • Have an interest in Theatre!

To apply please write a sort statement of previous experiences and a bit about yourself and tell us why you want to work with Harrogate Youth Theatre.

Please email lizzy.whynes@harrogatetheatre.co.uk or for more information call 01423 502710 ext. 129.


Our ushers are invaluable to us and we currently have more than 120 volunteers across three venues covering a range of duties, from taking tickets, selling ice creams and programmes, to staffing the shop and the cloakroom and helping people to their seats. Full training is given and new recruits are partnered with more experienced ushers. There is no upper age limit on becoming an usher, but you would need to think about the late finishing time and getting home safely after the show.

For more information about becoming an usher please email Dave Robertson, Deputy Operations Manager on david.robertson@harrogatetheatre.co.uk. 

Mail shots

We regularly send out letters to our audiences with news of forthcoming productions. If you have a couple of hours to spare every few weeks or so, and would like to help us prepare mailings we would love to hear from you. It’s good opportunity to catch up with other theatre lovers over tea and biscuits and help the theatre at the same time 

Poster Distribution

Many of the local shops and business display posters for the theatre, perhaps you could help us by volunteering to distribute posters and flyers in your area. We would be especially interested to hear from people in the out lying villages who would like to help distribute posters for us, as well as those of you based in Harrogate itself. It just takes a few minutes to do and generates lots of interest in the shows.

If you would like to give a little of your time we would love to hear from you. To find out more about these volunteer opportunities please just give us a ring on 01423 502 710.
