The Big House Theatre Company

Not-for-profits gain from the access to a professional skillset they don’t have in-house and volunteers often get to use their skills in new environments, take on greater responsibility and gain valuable experience. Several of our guardians sidestep traditional volunteering opportunities and use their professional skills to add long term value and impact to charities. Guardian Josh, a Lighting Designer, volunteers his talents and massive chunks of his time to The Big House Theatre Company in east London.

Led by Artistic Director Maggie Norris (who won a place on the The Independent’s 2014 Happy List for her tireless work), The Big House was founded in January 2013 to work with care leavers to provide them with a safe and creative place wherein they can develop their skills and confidence. A therapeutic tool, live performance builds trust and provides a voice and a platform to young people who may be struggling with the stressful complexities of beginning a new life outside of care.

Their powerful and energetic performances are constantly praised by critics and their work with young people is exciting and innovative, something communities across the country need. They’re always on the lookout for brilliant volunteers who have time and skills to share. They’re also looking for a volunteer to join their Front of House team from 13th November to 20th December 2014. Get in touch for details via
