Could you be the cornerHOUSE diary coordinator ?
We urgently need a volunteer to take on this role. The diary is the backbone of everything that goes on in the arts centre. The co-ordinator is the first point of contact for all enquiries about booking for private hires and public events. The co-ordinator works closely with, and is supported by, the artistic team and the trustees to programme activities and liaise with the bookers.
The role can be run from home as most of the contact is by e-mail; the holder also attends the monthly artistic team meetings. Some knowledge of working with spreadsheets would be helpful, as the enquiry log and the diary are maintained on simple spreadsheets. The post would probably be best suited to someone who is not in full time employment.
For more information please e-mail email@example.com

New Initiatives Grant: The cornerHOUSE has successfully applied for a New Initiatives grant from Kingston Arts to put towards a series of workshops or master classes for amateur musicians. Through the terms of the grant, professional musicians who are performing locally for Thames Concerts in Surbiton will, as part of their contract, give coaching sessions to young performers at the cornerHOUSE.
More details about the New Initiatives grant as a whole, can be found on the Your Kingston ‘New Initiatives’ Grant page of the website, under the ‘inHOUSE events tab at the top of this page or here.
We have drama, comedy, music and more, with in-house productions, resident companies, local and professional drama companies, and some of the UKs finest comedians all providing the entertainment every month. We host classes, workshops, after-school clubs and other educational and artistic activities. We also have exhibitions from some of the best local artists and photographers, and a monthly film club where you can see everything from classic movies to the latest independent hits.
But the cornerHOUSE is not just a place where you can watch shows. It’s also a place where you can be part of the shows, on-stage, backstage, front of house, or behind the bar. Wherever you want to be, and whatever you want to do we have something for you.
Go to the “About Us” pages to find out about volunteering, hiring the cornerHOUSE, or just to know a bit more about us and contact us about anything else.
Whatever you do, we hope to see you here soon.
