Are you interested in being a voice for The Telling and making a valuable contribution to your area’s cultural scene? We’re seeking motivated individuals from each of our resident areas to join our Ambassador scheme. 


Location: Initially Liverpool, Wolverhampton, Hounslow, South Cumbria (Barrow-in-Furness/Grange-over-Sands)

About the Role

We are looking for a handful of ambassadors from each of our resident areas to help spread the word on the ground about The Telling and our local events, and enable us to reach a wider audience.

We’d love you to take a lead in helping us distribute flyers and make contacts. In particular, we are interested in: growing our young following, breaking barriers for those who might otherwise attend our events, and targeting people interested in events of other genres who may not think The Telling is for them.
