Curzon seeks new volunteers
ENTHUSIASTIC volunteers are being sought as Clevedon’s historic cinema extends its activities and opening hours.
The Curzon Community Cinema in Old Church Road is seeking new additions to its team following recent buildings works, carried out using a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, that have allowed more areas to be opened to the public.
There are plans to open the cinema earlier each evening to allow people to look around the new exhibition areas.
So, volunteers are needed to take on roles including exhibition guides, helping to maintain the building, selling drinks and snacks in the new Oak Room lounge area and distributing Curzon publicity.
Curzon director Gareth Negus said: “Ever since the building was taken over by the regisered charity in 1996, we have relied on volunteers to supplement the paid staff.

“In 2011, we are aiming to increase access to the building and the Curzon Collection of Heritage Cinema Projectors, expand our education work, and utilise the Oak Room for a wider variety of events.”
Anyone interested in volunteering can attend an open morning in the Oak Room at the Curzon between 11am-1pm on January 29.
