We offer some exciting opportunities to volunteer with us. If you’re passionate about music, education, heritage and your community you may be interested in some of the opportunities we have on offer.

We work with people of all ages and backgrounds in partnership with community groups from across the city to create and celebrate the unity and joy of live music with everyone.

Volunteers play a vital role in extending and developing our work during this exciting period of transformation. We aim to provide a supportive, interesting and enjoyable environment for all our volunteers. We hope that our volunteer programme will help volunteers to develop their personal and professional skills alongside gaining valuable experience in an exciting cultural environment.
