About this volunteering opportunity

Our Front of House team plays a key role in making their experience enjoyable and memorable. Supervised by the Front of House Managers, our Front of House Volunteers assist and greet incoming audiences, helping to connect them with shows and other activities on site, and deal with general enquiries. Some of the skills you will gain, or build on, are people management within a live venue environment, time management, awareness of Health & Safety and fire procedures and assisting the Box Office with ticket validation and information.
In return for all your hard work, you will get your own personal Staff Pass, which will enable you to attend any of the 1145 performances at The Warren for FREE whenever you’re not on shift, provided they’re not sold out (sometimes you can also watch shows as part of your shift, but that’s not always possible). With your pass you will also get discounts on the bars and our food stalls. More than anything though, it’s a brilliant opportunity to meet great people, have an amazing time in an exciting environment, and get to know a fantastic and varied programme of shows.

About this organisation

The Warren is run by Otherplace, one of Brighton’s biggest production companies with a reputation for creative excellence. Often described as a ‘festival-within-a-festival’, The Warren is a bustling multi-venue site that pops up every year for the duration of Brighton Fringe. This year we are very excited to present our brand-new site at Victoria Gardens, featureing six theatre spaces, three bars, and a family area. We will have a programme of 250 events taking place between 2 May and 2 June.

Induction, training and support offered with this opportunity

We will of course provide you with full training on all parts of the role during your Volunteer Induction and also continuously throughout the festival. The Front of House Manager and the Front of House Supervisors are always on hand to provide support during your shift.

Skills or experience needed for this opportunity

As a member of the Front of House team, you are essentially the public face of the Warren, so this role is ideally suited if you enjoy working with the general public and are enthusiastic about theatre and live performance!
In order to make our festival schedule work, we will need you to be able to commit to at least 3 x 5-hour shifts per week throughout the festival. The shifts can be weekdays and weekends, morning, day, and evening.
