Volunteering with Pavilions

Pavilions Teignmouth is dependent on a dedicated group of volunteers

Why not join our friendly team?

Volunteers get involved at Pavilions Teignmouth every day, carrying out a diverse range of duties and keeping the Venue and its activities running smoothly.

We always welcome new volunteers; there are roles to suit everyone. We know that the time you give as a volunteer is based on your other commitments, so if you can only do a few hours a month that is fine… if you can offer more than that, then great.

As a volunteer you will be part of a team, meet new friends, learn new skills and help a local charity.  You will also get to see some great shows, meet performers and watch the latest films.
