Appeal for volunteers to play their part at Century Theatre

There are plenty of roles available

The Century Theatre

Friendly and enthusiastic volunteers are being sought to play a vital role at the Century Theatre in Coalville.

The theatre is appealing for people to come forward and find out more about the volunteer opportunities which are available in a wide range of roles.

The roles available are:

  • General – including front of house, ushering, car park duties and special projects if interested, such as refurbishing parts of the theatre, raising awareness of the theatre and its programme and preserving the theatre’s fascinating history;
  • Technical – lighting, sound, assisting in the control room, rigging equipment, setting up for shows and keeping up to date with latest technology;
  • Stage manager – including organising and looking after the running of shows and liaising with the technical team and front of house to ensure it’s alright on the night; and
  • Community outreach – working with community groups to bring them into the theatre.

Volunteers are a vital part of the life of the Century Theatre and I would like to thank them for the huge contribution that they make.

“There is a dedicated and committed team of volunteers at the theatre, using their skills and giving their time for a project that is close to their hearts. I would encourage anyone who is thinking about volunteering - for as little or as much time as they would like - to get in touch with the Century Theatre team.


Anyone who would like to find out more about volunteering at Century Theatre and who is aged over 18 is asked to contact the Century Theatre on 01530 278 444 or email
