Can you spare us some time?

None of the events at Taunton Brewhouse could happen without our dedicated team of passionate volunteers.

Whether you see yourself in a front of house role – helping our audiences have the best experience possible – or creating the magic backstage, we’re always looking for new team members to get involved.

Why Volunteer with us?

Did you know that Taunton Brewhouse is a registered charity? By volunteering with us, you’ll be contributing to our ability to deliver exciting live events, cinema screenings and contemporary art to the county town of Somerset, as well as supporting local artists and creatives. 

It’s not all work and no play! It’s a chance to socialise and meet new and interesting people both while on shift, and at the two social events per year to celebrate all that we’ve achieved together. 

As a thank you for your support, we offer all volunteers complimentary and/or discounted tickets to select events, a complimentary soft or hot drink when you are on shift, a discount on food and drinks in our Bar and Café, and invitations to training events.

It’s also fun! You’ll be part of a small, dedicated team working on events that you’re passionate about, supporting our staff to ensure that the show goes on, and contributing to the success of the arts in Taunton
