Burnley locals get chance to programme arts events
Burnley Mechanics are giving local people the chance to choose and host professional arts and music events in the Front Room space as part of our volunteer programme.
The project works with volunteers to become Community Promoters and help make the Front Room a home for professional, music, theatre and art within The Burnley Mechanics. Local people will be given the chance to join in with the programming process, choose which shows happen and then get involved with promoting and hosting the events.
The Mechanics welcome volunteers from all walks of life to get involved, and the hours and commitment to the project is flexible.
The Front Room, which by day is a very successful and busy bistro, is been fitted out with all the equipment needed to host professional theatre and music. Exciting new shows are programmes throughout the year and volunteers are given the chance to work with the artists, create marketing campaigns and organise the event on the evening. Tickets and details of the shows coming to The Front Room are available online or by calling the box office on 01282 664 400.
Community engagement coordinator Stephie Jessop said:
‘We do our best to make sure the shows we programme are ones that the people of Burnley want to see.’
Monthly community promoters meetings take place each month and anyone who is interested in getting involved should contact Stephie by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 01254 674 777.
