STAR AND SHADOW CINEMA

When you walk through the door of the Star & Shadow you make a friend. This sentiment resonates with most of our volunteers. To keep the establishment going we need you to keep getting involved. 
 

We need gardeners, window cleaners, cake makers, sweepers, bar staff, event organisers, people who make things happen, people who make things, admin folk, marketing folk, DIY culture enthusiasts, front of house specialists, back of house crackerjacks, keyholder hotshots and technical dab hands.

 Everything can be learned on the job, by shadowing your volunteer friend and doing our inductions. Inductions are always on a Sunday 

You can volunteer for a job, a one-off occasion, a regular weekly slot – however it best fits with you.
