Join the Tempest Backstage

The Belfast Tempest is the largest Shakespeare event ever organised in Belfast, and it is part of the global celebrations honouring the 400th Anniversary of Shakespeare’s death.  We have a number of volunteering opportunities on the Belfast Tempest.  Tempest community rehearsal begins from the end of January 2016, professional rehearsal kicks in on the 28th of March 2016, and the six performances run April 20th to 23rd.

If you’re well organised, love the theatre and want to be part of the Belfast Tempest, but you’re not a performer, then please consider signing up to be part of the backstage team.  With 200 community performers and a full professional team, we’re going to need you!
