Get Involved at Shaftesbury Arts Centre

It’s a great way to meet people, be at the heart of something amazing, and enjoy new experiences. We rely solely on volunteers to manage every aspect of the Arts Centre, from set building to selling tickets, and from make-up to maintenance.

If you’ve got a little time, and would like to meet new people and get involved, please pop into the Arts Centre and have a chat with Charlie, our Centre Manager, or leave your name at the Box Office with details of the areas that interest you. Alternatively, please email or telephone 01747 854321.
