Then you could volunteer to be a Welcome Volunteer at Mansfield Palace Theatre.

The theatre welcomes more than 120,000 people every year to enjoy comedy, music, family shows and pantomime and as a welcome volunteer you’ll greet audiences with a smile, help direct them to their seats and keep an eye on the audience, and what’s on the stage, during the show.

During the interval you’ll be making sure everywhere is tidy and helping customers if they need any support.
