We rely on our dedicated team of welcoming volunteers and recognise the invaluable contribution they make in helping to enhance the overall experience of visitors and fulfil the aims and objectives of Tacchi-Morris Arts Centre. Our volunteers assist in the day-to-day running of the box office, front of house services, café and bar, as well as coordinating the exhibitions programme. As Nicky Morgan, our Director of Operations once said of the Tacchi-Morris volunteers: "We simply couldn't open our doors without them!"
Our volunteers at Tacchi-Morris Arts Centre span a diverse range of interests and backgrounds, from Year 7 students from Heathfield Community School (who greet the audience at the theatre doors and check tickets), to working professionals and those who are now retired. Volunteering here is a great way to make new friends, to get the buzz of working in a busy arts centre, and to see some great shows for free!
"I enjoy the friendly atmosphere, have met lots of lovely people and really feel part of the team."
Pauline Smith, Tacchi-Morris Exhibitions Volunteer
