Become a volunteer

At The Smokehouse we embrace a DIY attitude with 90% of our staff as volunteers! If you'd like to gain experience in live events, whether that be in lighting, photography, sound, video production, bar, or just the general running of a gig, we believe The Smokehouse offers the perfect opportunity to learn and develop skills on the go!

There is no obligation to commit to a certain number of events a year, we are simply grateful for any time you can spare us, and it doesn't go unrewarded!

As well as this looking great on your CV and opening up employment prospects, this is a great chance to meet like-minded people in the area! Those who join our lovely bunch of Smokehouse volunteers will have access to the following benefits:

  • 1 x free drink when volunteering

  • Reduced rates to The Smokehouse Presents... gigs and events

  • 50p off drinks at the bar when attending gigs

  • Reduced rates for rehearsing and recording at Punch Studios

  • Free The Smokehouse Live T-Shirt
