Blackpool Grand Theatre
Our incredible team of Blackpool Grand Theatre Volunteers get involved across our programmes and activities here at the Theatre.
Using their passion, knowledge and love of the theatre, our volunteers help make our beautiful venue a stimulating and friendly place to visit and discover.
The theatre still has active Volunteers that joined at the very beginning and have helped shape our future. We’ve now got an incredible team of over 100 volunteers who continue to help by engaging with our amazing audiences and connecting us to the community across Blackpool, Fylde, Wyre and beyond.
Blackpool’s Grand Theatre has a team of over 100 active volunteers. Volunteers help create our friendly atmosphere, welcoming our customers and assisting with enquiries and sales.
Volunteers play a vital part in the success of our charity contributing over 10,500 hours annually. Volunteers have free access to so many great shows. Our current Volunteers tell us they love the social aspect of Volunteering and the opportunity to meet new people and old friends.

Blackpool Grand Theatre Volunteer Roles
From welcoming audiences and guests to engaging with community, social and educational groups across the North West with our exciting shows and interactive projects, our volunteer roles at Blackpool’s Grand Theatre are key to supporting our programme. All volunteers join the team as Front of House supporters (this could be on the coffee bar, selling merchandise, or directing customers to their seats) and can then progress to specific roles supporting regular events, as well as seasonal engagement activities or launches.
As Blackpool’s Grand develops, so does our Volunteer Programme and we’re working to form new roles and activities for volunteers to develop experiences and skills.
