Volunteer Programme in Thurrock

The Royal Opera House Volunteer Programme in Thurrock provides a rich and vibrant schedule of participation for volunteers in Thurrock, enabling volunteers to make a direct contribution to the Thurrock community.

Previously, volunteers have assisted with Inspiration Days, Public Tours and various other public events in Thurrock such as the Big Screen, Village Beach and the Big Draw.  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."

Since 2010, a small number of volunteers are selected for the award each year and are presented with their awards at a ceremony at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. In 2015, three Royal Opera House Thurrock volunteers received the award.
