Volunteering Opportunities

Our volunteers are vital in supporting our work.  We aim to deliver high quality arts for our participants and audiences and make their experiences rewarding and enriching.  We have a range of exciting opportunities for you to get involved in our Derby Season Of Light , and some of which do not require you to have any experience, just a willingness and commitment to help and learn.  It's a chance for you to meet new people, share, learn a new skill and new colourful culture.   Take a look at the opportunties below  and if interested please get in touch.
