Calling all keen volunteers all about the theatre life!

South Street Arts Centre are looking for some dedicated volunteers available on June 23 and June 24 to guide audience members through the Reading Abbey Quarter in an amazing promenade performance.

The unpaid opportunity will require individuals to escort the audience between the five short scenes taking place throughout the ruins, ensuring they have an enjoyable experience of the performance.

You would need to be available at least one of the days between 10am and 6pm, however, there will be a lunch break where volunteers will be provided with lunch.

This is an amazing opportunity to become involved in an exciting community project to celebrate Reading’s history, and a chance to experience the brilliant work of several local theatre companies.

In Ruins is an immersive, site-specific theatre experience that will bring to life several moments within the Reading Abbey Quarter’s history as part of a Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) project to celebrate the re-opening of the Abbey ruins.

The project is a SITELINES commission in collaboration with South Street, The Abbey and five local theatre companies.
