Romford community theatre seeks volunteers

January 25, 2019 by  

Brookside Theatre in Romford is looking for voluntary workers that want to help their community.

The Brookside Theatre is located on Romford’s Eastern Road. Its management hope to attract people to the venue to lend a hand in a third sector role. Poster printing can be of genuine assistance to organisations for a variety of purposes.

Jai Sepple, a director at Brookside Theatre, told the Romford Recorder:

“Volunteering at the theatre is not only a great way to make new friends and make a difference to this great community asset but it’s a great way see some fantastic, first-class entertainment without paying.”

Volunteers who come forward should not be bored as there will be a variety of tasks to perform. Individuals may wish to get involved in ushering, selling refreshments or leaflet distribution. Experience is not required, but a volunteer should be prepared to show willing.

It was back in 1953 that the building which accommodates the theatre was built. At that time, the construction was called the Romford War Memorial Social Club. However, it has suffered from neglect over the years.

However, 2011 saw the site get a new lease of life. Sepple was instrumental in the transformation of the building. Romford town centre had never been served by a community theatre in the past. The creation of Brookside Theatre was a historic innovation.
