Volunteer Information

Chequer Mead relies on the contribution of our loyal team of volunteers. The theatre currently has over 80 volunteers who help on a daily basis in a variety of roles. Full training and support is given to each volunteer to ensure their time at Chequer Mead is enjoyable.

Volunteers currently assist the running of the theatre in the following ways:


Stewards assist our patrons when they arrive at our main auditorium. Stewards are asked to check tickets, show customer’s to their seats, assist in their enquiries and ensure their safety during their visit to the theatre. Occasionally stewards also assist in the selling of programmes and merchandise.

Bar Tenders

Our bar tenders serve drinks, confectionary and other items sold in our Pavilion Bar to customers before a show, during the interval and on occasion after the show. Our volunteers also take interval drinks orders and prepare the m during the show.

Box Office Assistants

Working alongside the centre’s staff in the main office, the Box Office volunteers carry out counter and phone sales for theatre tickets using the theatre’s computerised Box Office system. They are expected to handle cash and card payments, full training is given and volunteer staff are supervised at all times.


If you are interested in joining our ever-growing team of volunteers, we’d love to hear from you. Please contact Yvonne Reynard, our Volunteer Co-Ordinator by clicking here.
