Be part of the bar team at the award-winning arts centre

Catering volunteers needed for Rising Sun Arts Centre in RG1

The Rising Sun Arts Centre is an award-winning, independent arts centre, which for 27 years has been staffed and run by volunteers. The Rising Sun started as a squat, created by a group of intrepid artists who saw a need for ground-level arts development, for and by, the people of Reading. The centre gained charity status in the mid-90s and has been at the heart of Reading’s cultural life ever since.

We are seeking volunteers to help run our bar, it’s our biggest stream of income and it’s important for us to make the most of it. Volunteers on the bar will serve customers, restock fridges and answer any queries that visitors might have. You will make visitors feel welcome and be an integral part of raising funds for the running of the arts centre.
