Royston Volunteer Centre manager Denise Graham’s regular look at the voluntary sector in North East Herts
With the eyes of the world turning to the annual Oscars ceremony at the weekend, this week our spotlight is on cinema closer to home.
Volunteers are the stars of the show at Royston Picture Palace, the community cinema which is dedicated to showing quality films to appreciative audiences of all ages.
With its central location in Royston Town Hall and easy parking, it is accessible to all and recognised as a real asset to our town.
Overseen by the cinema manager, the Picture Palace is run by dedicated teams of volunteers who are trained to take on a variety of roles to ensure the smooth running of the performances and an enjoyable evening for cinema goers. With extended opening hours, including matinee and Sunday screenings due to popular demand, more volunteers are invited to become a vital part of this unique experience.

There are many ways you can become involved – if you would like to help run the box office or the refreshment kiosk, welcome visitors, act as an usher, help to put the seating out, tear tickets, or hand out publicity information, we would be delighted to hear from you.
A rota system is in place so you can volunteer regularly at times to suit you and you will have the opportunity to interact with the public in this enjoyable setting.
