Location: The Old Electric

Blackpool’s community theatre, the Old Electric, invites you to be part of its creative community. To celebrate its third birthday, the OE is giving the venue a summer spruce up and wants to hear your ideas. Join them from 10am-6pm at their open house where youโ€™ll be given volunteering jobs such as painting, cleaning, technical and artistic projects, soft furnishing updates, lifting, shifting and admin-ing. Volunteers should arrive at either 10am or 1pm each day and be prepared to get dirty! There will be tea and biscuits at 11-11.30am and 3-3.30pm each day where you can share your views about what they should be doing more of and to answer any questions about future opportunities.
