Volunteering with York Theatre Royal is a great way to get involved and support us, as well as learning new skills and meeting like-minded people. We have several opportunities for you to contribute your time and skills.

Photography Group

Open to professionals and hobbyists, the York Theatre Royal Volunteer Photography Group is perfect if you want to meet other local photographers, practice your skills and gain unprecedented access to theatre events and productions – from photographing youth theatre to documenting our large-scale community productions.

Sewing Group

Supported by York Theatre Royal’s Wardrobe department, this social group is for anyone who enjoys sewing and would like to meet other like-minded people. This fabulous group help to repair costume hire outfits and occasionally work on new costumes for productions in the theatre. Tea and biscuits are always to hand. For more information please email Hazel Jupp wardrobe@yorktheatreroyal.co.uk or drop into any session, every Wednesday 1-4pm in De Grey Rooms.


Community Programming Group

Join a group of like-minded people once a month to voice your opinion on different aspects of York Theatre Royal and shape part of our creative output. We want our theatre to reflect our community and to ensure that your ideas and thoughts are deeply embedded in the work we make and present. The Visionari group was formed to reflect the diverse city in which we live and work. To find out more please email visionari@yorktheatreroyal.co.uk
