When you become a volunteer you will have access to the volunteer area of the website, where you will be able to sign up to help at upcoming events, and access useful information.

Do I need special skills?

While we welcome experitise it is not required- enthusiasm for the community and the Town Hall is the main thing. We will show you the ropes and arrange training if necessary.

What are the benefits of volunteering?

You’ll get to see the show for free! And the satisfaction of knowing that you are helping to preserve the town  hall for the enjoyment of the community for future generations.

What volunteering opportunities are available?

Our main need is for an extra pair of hands for our shows. We need people to check tickets, direct people to our facilities, or look after our performers. We also need help distributing our publicity materials- a poster in your local shop or flyers in the pub is a big help. 

Will training be available?

Yes. If you are involved in our events we may arrange fire safety training so you can safely assist should we ever need to evacuate the building. We will informally induct you into the Town Hall, showing you how things work. If you would like training in a specific area, we will do our best to train you in-house, or arrange external training should the need arise.

Is the Town Hall a Charity?

Yes! The Town Hall is run by Bakewell Town & Community Trust, a charity and a company limited by guarantee. The Trust has the Town Hall on a lease and operates the building for the benefit of the people. There are four members of staff, overseen by a board of trustees.

Can I become a trustee?

Yes! First you must become a member by joining the Trust. It costs £10 a year. You can then apply to be a trustee. We welcome a wide range of people from all walks of life. You don’t need special skills but we wel ome people with a love for the arts, specialist skills in fundraising and experience in the charity sector.
