Volunteer at Portico

Concerts, heritage, gardening...

Why volunteer?

Here's what our current volunteers say about volunteering at Portico:

"I love the range of events - things I never would normally try. It's really broadened my horizons. Portico is my social life now and it's free!"

"I enjoy meeting new people"

"Going backstage and meeting the artists is style!"

"My garden at home isn't that big so I like looking after the garden at Portico and it's nice to give something back"

"It's good experience to put on my CV"

"It's great craic! The atmosphere is always really good and we have a laugh"

"I appreciate the opportunity to share my knowledge of local history in my retirement"

"It's like a night out with a little bit of being helpful thrown in"

"I'd only be sat at home otherwise so why not get out and enjoy life?"


What about Covid restrictions?

We are currently recruiting and training new volunteers so we will be ready when we are permitted to reopen. We will, of course, be following all guidance regarding capacity, social distancing, etc. which is why we want all volunteers - old and new - to engage in fresh induction training. It's just one afternoon or evening and then you'll be ready to volunteer at the likes of Neil Delamere, the Simon and Garfunkel Story, our Comedy Arts Festival and much more!
