Our volunteers are the backbone of The Tower Theatre team. They share a love of theatre and give freely their time to contribute to the development and wellbeing of the theatre.

Our volunteers enjoy a sense of being a part of our organisation which has deep roots in the local community and has a national reputation for high standards of quality and innovation.

Volunteers also have the opportunity to meet and socialise with like-minded people and watch our productions when on duty.
