Volunteer Ushers (Aged 18+)
The Royal Exchange Theatre is one of the best known theatres in the UK, and puts on more than 500 performances in the Theatre and the Studio every year.

The Royal Exchange building is one of the most amazing buildings in Manchester City Centre.

Volunteer ushers are members of our Front of House team, whose main role is to welcome the public into the theatre in a warm and friendly way, and ensure that all visitors are able to enjoy all of the areas occupied by the Royal Exchange Theatre Company in a safe and welcoming environment.

All of our volunteers receive full training and induction, together with a uniform and badge. Volunteers will also be able to take advantage of free tickets to see our shows, and free programmes.

The theatre is easily accessible via public transport and discounted city centre parking is also available.
Our flexible volunteer usher programme provides a rewarding opportunity for people who love theatre to join the Royal Exchange Team and work together in a great environment.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer usher, please download and complete our Application Form, and send this to: Lynne Yates, Front of House Manager, Lynne.yates@royalexchange.co.uk
