Join our team of volunteer ushers at Taunton Brewhouse. Ushers meet and greet patrons, facilitate the smooth running of events, and sit in on shows!

Detailed description

Help us make arts and culture thrive in Somerset and join our team of volunteers today.

Our usher team is the first point of contact for our patrons: meeting and greeting, offering information about our venue and programme, tearing tickets, and providing assistance in the auditorium for the duration of the show before bidding them all goodnight.

Responsibilities may additionally include some light set-up (arrange tables and chairs, etc), stewarding exhibitions, and jumping behind the kiosk to provide assistance with selling concessions.

Please see our website for our upcoming programme - you'll see that we host a wide range of events, from contemporary performance and stand-up comedy, to music and dance, to family shows and cinema!

Events happen in our auditorium, studio, and outside in locations around Taunton. There are a variety of daytime, evening, and weekend opportunities, and shifts can last anywhere between 90 minutes and several hours, depending on the event. Volunteers are sent a monthly rota in advance and can sign up for shifts which fit their schedule. Shifts are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

Volunteer benefits include pairs of complimentary tickets to select events within the month they are volunteering, discounts on other tickets and at the bar, invitations to training sessions, and seasonal socials.

If you'd like to join a warm and passionate team while engaging with and supporting the arts in Somerset, please get in touch. We'd love to hear from you!
