Volunteering

Are you interested in volunteering at Trinity?

Volunteering is a great opportunity to make friends, gain new skills and become part of a thriving community. Trinity was founded by volunteers and continues to run on the enthusiasm and generosity of a large volunteer base. Across the theatre, our volunteers give 30,000 hours to Trinity every year, and there are a wide variety of roles to suit every age and interest.

Become a volunteer

Our Box Office volunteers are the ‘face of Trinity’. This is great for those who are good with computers, have a cool head and a happy persona.

What’s involved?

Selling tickets and speaking to customers, looking after telephone and audience enquiries, printing and handing out tickets on the night.

Role requirements: Applicants must be computer literate and aged 18 or over.

“Working in the Box Office is never boring – no two days alike.  A great team to work with – and can still say this to be true after volunteering for 15 years.”

Our ushers make sure that performances at Trinity run smoothly, whilst looking after our audience members. Ushers get to enjoy performances whilst on duty.

What’s involved?

Checking tickets, selling merchandise and ice creams, assisting the duty manager, looking after audiences inside the auditorium.

“No doubt we could write a book about our experiences there. Suffice to say it has proved to be many rewarding years. One of the best aspects has been the other volunteers we have worked with. The obvious benefit is in seeing the shows we want to see.”

Duty managers are senior Front of House Volunteers and one of the lead team members during shows. You must be friendly, confident and calm in a crisis! Duty managing is a role for those who really want to get stuck in to the action of live theatre.

Making sure the shows run smoothly, meeting and greetings acts or performers, managing programme and merchandise sales, managing ushers, working with the technicians and bar staff to solve any problems.

Role requirements: Duty managers must be aged 21 and over

“Being a Duty Manager at Trinity is not just a volunteering role it is being part of the company ensuring that this community spirit is carried forward and and radiating into the heart of the community. It is a pleasure to be part of this providing all who enter the opportunity to see various local artistic ideas in the gallery to films, live theatre, music and screened live performances from the West End, Stratford, the Royal Opera and Glynbourne plus the occassional opera or ballet from the New York Met or Kirov; not forgetting the vibrant and all embracing Christmas shows that have become an eagerly anticipated family event. Quite a confection for the senses and an uplifting of the spirit.”
