Join the Tempest Front of House Team

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. 

Are you well organised, and good at getting people to do what you say – in the nicest possible way?  We are expecting up to 500 people per performance at the Belfast Tempest, all arriving with ‘cushions, cloaks and supplies’ to find a place to sit on the bleachers and rafts that make up the Belfast Tempest seating.  A team of well-organised front of house volunteer stewards under the captaincy of our Front of House Manager are going to be essential to making the show a comfortable and exciting experience for all.  We’ll also need meters and greeters to liaise with particular sponsors.  If you want to be part of ensuring the success of the show, then why not join our volunteer steward team?

You would be meeting the Front of House Manager for a kick off meeting in early to mid April, then you'd undertake two training sessions before joining the team.

The performances run April 20th to 23rd, starting at 7:30 pm.  There are also two matinees at 1pm on Friday the 22nd and Saturday the 23rd.  You wouldn't need to be available for all of them, but if you can that's even better!
