Get closer

We're so much more than our work on stage

And the best part? Everyone’s welcome. Any age, any ability. Come down and get inspired.

We know that many people start out their relationship with CFT in small ways - a coffee, a workshop, a simple 'like' on social media - and over time grow more attached; or they come to see a show, the spark catches and they want to get more involved.

If that sounds like you - looking to get closer to CFT - here are some of the ways you can do that.

Volunteering at CFT

I think we can all agree volunteering is a great thing to do at any age. You can make friends, support your favourite charity and build your skill set (as well as adding something wonderful to your CV). We're extremely grateful to all of our volunteers past and present for their work at CFT. You can read about our different volunteering groups below.

We’re currently fully subscribed for our volunteering opportunities and have a wait list in place, you can fill in the form below to be added to our wait list. Unfortunately we aren't accepting new registrations for Audio Describers currently.

CFT Buddies

Our friendly Buddies are a team of trained volunteers who offer a free companion service for audience members.

Heritage and archive volunteers

This group all have great attention to detail and admin skills. They meet weekly to assist with the upkeep of our ever-increasing archive, including production photographs, videos, press cuttings, posters and programmes.

Audio Describers

Making sure our shows are accessible to everyone is top of our priority list. Our audio describers detail what's happening on stage for blind or visually impaired people so they can enjoy our live performances.

Ad Hoc Projects and Events

This group of volunteers help us with any of our ad hoc projects and events. From helping to set up an exhibition in the foyer, to chaperoning, being an event marshal, or handing out flyers.
