Volunteering at The Lowry


Volunteer for us

 The Lowry operates one of the largest volunteer programmes of any cultural venue in the country. It has been an integral part of The Lowry’s Front of House operation since we first opened our doors in April 2000.

The primary role of the VIPs is to provide excellent customer service to The Lowry’s theatre patrons. They act as ushers and fire marshals for the venue’s three theatre spaces, sell programmes and merchandise, provide a cloakroom service and assist in other operational duties as required by the Front of House management team.

They also act as ambassadors for The Lowry, promoting the artistic programme and our learning and engagement work within their own networks and on behalf of the organisation at promotional events.

Recruitment for VIPs takes place once a year, usually in the spring. Application details will appear below during that process.
