Get Involved

As well as being a GSC Friend or Patron, there are a number of other ways you can support us...

VOLUNTEERS

In 2016 we created 340 volunteer opportunities on our Front of House shifts at our performances.

These wonderful individuals are the first people our audiences meet as they arrive at our performances; they show people to their seats; serve on the bar and Box Office; marshal audiences on promenade moves and generally create a fabulously warm and welcoming atmosphere.

If you would like to join this growing band of all-round smashing people and help support the continued work of GSC, please contact our Front of House Manager.

Perks can include complimentary tickets to shows and other bespoke events.

Why not make the most of it by introducing a friend to volunteer with you!


SUPPORT IN KIND

The performances you see are just the tip of an enormous logistical ice-berg, which is in motion throughout the year.

The following are just some of the things that we are always looking for, so if you think you could be of help in any way we would love to hear from you:

  • Space for a Season advertising banner at your property or place of work
  • Printing Services
  • Stuffing envelopes and distributing flyers

  • Carpentry or building skills
  • You might run a business whose products we could use in the shows, for example a garden centre or a builders' merchants

Any support would be gratefully received and credited accordingly.

If you think you can help, email us or call 01483 301590


FLYERS AND POSTERS

Our shows don't sell themselves, so during the months leading up to and during a Season we create a diverse and integrated marketing campaign.

We employ many different strands from social media to magazine adverts to the back of buses; but as they say every little helps...

Could you:

  • take a bundle of flyers and drop them through your streets' letterboxes?
  • put them up in your local café or newspaper shop?
  • do you have a garden or land where we could erect a banner?
  • could you take a set of flyers/posters in to your work’s communal area or kitchen?

Any way you can help to spread the word of GSC would be an enormous to boost to us.

If you think you can help, email us or call 01483 301590


VENUES

We adore using interesting or unusual venues for our performances, so we're always keen to hear from people who have, or know of, a venue – a stately home, picturesque gardens, a barn, or maybe a disused factory or warehouse - that could provide another spectacular setting for a Guildford Shakespeare Company production.

Equally you may have a social group that would benefit from a workshop or a talk…

If you think you might have something for us, contact Sarah Gobran or call 01483 301590
