Many of our friends find the time to join our dedicated and enthusiastic team of volunteers who run the Plaza from working in the box office, to serving on the bar, assisting Front of House to working on the Stage or in our projection room. All of our volunteers are committed to ensuring that we give a professional standard of service with a warmth and friendliness that has become our by word in customer care.
