Despite our best efforts over the last few weeks to avoid any disruptions to services we’ve had to take the difficult decision to temporarily close Cornerstone Arts Centre and the Nourish café as we need to carry out urgent maintenance work that affects the heating of the building.
January and February are traditionally quiet times for the centre, and we’re hoping to find alternative venues or dates for the events coming up, to keep disruption to a minimum.
We are extremely sorry for the inconvenience and any disappointment following this news, but given the cold weather we’re having, it’s very important to us to make sure we’re looking after the health and well-being of our visitors and staff.
You might not have realised that every usher you see when you come to the theatre at Cornerstone are volunteers. We simply would not be able to run the shows without them.
Cornerstone volunteers help out in a variety of ways and play a vital role in keeping a fantastic show on the road! Our friendly team help to staff the cloakroom and usher performances on show nights, come in for tea and biscuits once a season to assist with the distribution of Cornerstone's season guide and help to distribute posters and flyers locally to promote our programme.
We are always keen to to hear from new people who are interested in becoming a volunteer and want to support their local arts centre.
Becoming a volunteer at Cornerstone is very rewarding. Not only do you get to watch top UK touring shows for FREE, you will get to meet new people, socialise and also be a part of the magic at Cornerstone Arts Centre.
Key responsibilities of an usher include:
During the year, other opportunities for you to get involved can include:
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please either pop in and talk to us (ask for the Duty Manager) or call 01235 515144 or click here to email Emma Malley.
We especailly need extra support this Christmas for our wonderful Christmas show The Adventures of Pinocchio.
Any one welcome aged 16 - 100! We look forward to hearing from you.
