We think volunteering at the Arts Centre is fun, here’s what our stewards have to say about it:

“Being a steward at the Arts Centre has offered many things to me, ...opportunities to meet stimulating people, to contribute to the  running of this great community asset, to see  and enjoy a wide variety of entertainment which otherwise might pass me by, and,  not least, to share fun and laughter with the dedicated staff who keep it all going.”
“I enjoy being a steward, it is fun and gives you a chance to meet people and be part of a team contributing to the running  of a great Arts Centre”
