Volunteer Opportunities

Lichfield Arts is proud of its team of volunteers who give up their time to make all the events that Lichfield Arts promotes throughout the year happen and run as smoothly as possible. As well as ensuring our concerts, community festivals and events work well, our hard working volunteers help to support the Lichfield Arts office and the board of Trustees, who themselves are volunteers.
