Volunteer at the Black Swan

Want to get involved in the arts? Want to help the community? Like free tea and cake? Then come and help volunteer at the Black Swan!

We are helped by a small and very loyal army of volunteers without whom the building could not function. You can help with a range of tasks, from stewarding the main gallery though to admin and marketing, even the occasional bit of painting (you don't need to be an artist for the last one).

For further details and to be part of the team come in and speak to one of our friendly stewards in the main gallery or contact Emma in the office on 01373 473980 [email protected]
