The Civic is supported by our volunteer usher programme. The programme was first developed from our youth arts schools initiative: TENDERFOOT for transition year students and those initial volunteers have stayed with us until graduation from third level.
We rely heavily on the dedication and commitment of our ushers to ensure you, our patrons, have a great night out. Over the next few weeks in our blog, we offer you the chance to get to know a bit more about them. Next up its Nicole….. Check out the rest of the “Meet the Ushers” interviews here.
