‘I volunteer to give back for some of the pleasure I get from doing things at the Maltings. It is also fun to be able to steward at events which I enjoy especially for National Theatre screened plays and films. The main reason for volunteering was to give me a purpose in life.’ – Marion Nicholson, Volunteer
Volunteers support many of our activities at Farnham Maltings, from helping with brochure distribution to assisting artists in the community. The time and expertise that volunteers bring to Farnham Maltings is of enormous value and we are always looking to expand our team of volunteers. As a Maltings volunteer you are entitled to the many benefits that the building offers, including complimentary tickets to films and Farnham Maltings’ shows as well as working within a highly creative and sociable environment.
Whether you’re looking to build up your CV or find a new hobby, there will be something for everyone to take part in. Take a look at our fantastic new volunteer opportunities below.
Event Stewards (Family Theatre)
We are looking to extend our team of volunteer stewards for our exciting family theatre programme. Our family theatre events take place on weekdays and at weekends and this sociable role will involve interacting with younger audiences members and their families.
Event Stewards (Comedy Night)
We are also looking to extend our team of volunteer stewards for our monthly Comedy Nights. We specifically need volunteers who want to commit to a vibrant, midweek event that often showcases new talent and occasionally more established stand-up comedy acts.
We are seeking some more green fingered volunteers to support our existing team of gardeners and duty officers. The duty officers maintain the lawns and we have a contract with a local company, Greenbees, who manage all the heavy work. This volunteer role is specifically to do some light weeding and watering.
