Selby Town Hall

Volunteering At The Venue

About us


The Town Hall relies on a fantastically dedicated band of volunteers who help to keep all the shows going. From front of house to staffing the bar and loading up tour vans to making cups of tea for comedians…the place just couldn’t run without them.

Volunteers predominantly cover evenings (approx 6:45pm – 10:45pm) and, as a rough rule of thumb, would attend around 10 events per year.

We aren’t looking for new members of the venue team at this moment in time, but we do hold a waiting list for people who would be interested in volunteering at the Town Hall in the future.

If you would like to add your name, or want to find out any more detail, contact Chris on 01757 708449 or fill out the form on this page.
