Our dedicated team of volunteers take on a variety of roles throughout the year from selling programmes at the theatre to administration in the Opera Holland Park office. They are absolutely critical to the smooth running of the organisation, and we are always looking for new individuals to join our friendly team!
Volunteering at the theatre during the summer season
Be part of the team that helps make Opera Holland Park the highlight of our patrons’ summer. We need volunteers to help at all performances during the season to play a vital role in our front of house team.
- Programme selling either at our designated programme desk or roaming around the OHP theatre site. Full training is provided for the cash handling aspect of the role.
- Membership promotion around the theatre site
- Stage-door guardianship is an opportunity to experience the backstage atmosphere and meet some of the artists. It is the guardians’ responsibility to ensure that only authorised people have access to the backstage area.
As a season volunteer at OHP, we ask that you commit to a minimum of three evenings during the season and attend an induction/briefing prior to the season to prepare you for your role.
Volunteering in the office throughout the year
Our staff and volunteers work year round to produce the critically-acclaimed summer opera season, as well as deliver Inspire outreach projects in the local community. We need volunteers to help us with office administration and other ad-hoc work throughout the year. We also offer a variety of internships in marketing, development and production if you’re looking to expand your experience in the industry.
