We have a large pool of friendly volunteers who have helped to make us the Most Welcoming Theatre in the East Midlands in 2015, 2016 and 2018. These volunteers help at the Opera House, Pavilion Arts Centre, Buxton Cinema and administration offices, representing an in-kind contribution of nearly £238k per year.

Volunteers are the first people to greet customers when they come through our doors and we are always looking for new members to join the team. As a volunteer you will make new friends, learn new skills and contribute to the life of this wonderful theatre. We have both daytime and evening performances where volunteers help throughout the theatre selling programmes, ice creams and merchandise, serving drinks in the bars and showing customers to their seats. 

We also have a group of volunteers called The Friends of the Opera House who raise money to help us purchase equipment.

Every volunteer receives a full induction and ongoing training is provided. As part of your role we ask you to review a number of shows, for which you receive an allocation of tickets each year.
