Unfortunately, due to staff sickness, our Box Office is currently closed. We apologise for any inconvenience and look forward to seeing you again soon.

This summer we’re working on our building to fix some issues and replant our green roof. Our Café Bar will run a reduced service from Monday 15 July. Our Box Office is open as normal.

Volunteer with Us

The volunteering team is the face of St George’s, and we are keen for that face to better match the community it serves. We are a fully accessible venue and welcome volunteer applications from anyone aged from 18 to 79 who has an interest in any sort of music (and might enjoy being introduced to even more, or perhaps even some performance poetry or stand-up comedy!)

Your duties will include welcoming and guiding the audience to their seats, and being responsible for the evacuation of the audience through emergency exits if required. You may also be involved, if you wish, in scanning tickets and selling merchandise too. Your main job is being our friendly, helpful ambassador to the public and the local community, and ensuring the smooth running of events!

No previous experience is necessary, as all training is provided. Shifts are arranged by mutual agreement and at times that suit whatever your particular schedule will allow. Access to and by email at least once a week is our only requirement. These positions are completely unpaid but we hope that you will find our eclectic range of concerts, performances and events enriching in themselves.

It’s a perfect opportunity for those who want to take their first step back into employment, or for absolute beginners who haven’t yet entered the job world.

Please note

Whilst we are still accepting applications for volunteering roles, we do already have a long list of people who are interested in volunteering with us. Please do feel free to send us your application, but there may be a considerable wait before a volunteering opportunity becomes available.
