The Royal Opera House Volunteer Programme in Thurrock provides a rich and vibrant programme of participation for volunteers in Thurrock, enabling volunteers to make a direct contribution to the Thurrock community.
Previously, volunteers have assisted with Inspiration Days, where schools and groups come to explore and discover what happens behind-the-scenes at the Bob and Tamar Manoukian Production Workshop. Other volunteer activities include supporting our on-site events, such as the BP Big Screen and Public Tours. We also have volunteers who assist with office tasks such as making phone calls, photocopying, posting letters and data entry for our databases.
I have been volunteering on the Inspiration Days, an experience I have found very rewarding as I too have learned to appreciate the skill and attention to detail that goes into creating the scenery, the costumes, the lighting, and the props, and the management that pulls it all together. I have learnt a lot from working alongside the tour guides and the creative practitioners who run the workshops - they make every tour special."
