Join the Volunteer Audio Description Team at BOV

posted 7 Nov 2016, 12:50 by Marc Pepperell
We have received a request from Liz Hebden, Front of House Manager at BOV to publicize an invitation to our members, at least two or three of whom already provide this service. She writes: Bristol Old Vic’s friendly volunteer group of Audio Describers are looking to recruit some new members to assist the team with the Audio Described shows at Bristol Old Vic.

Audio Describing provides a vital service to our blind and partially sighted customers. The team provide a visual commentary describing what is happening onstage during live performances. From facial expressions, movement and action sequences to props, costume, set and lighting.

We are looking for candidates who are clear communicators, confident speakers and theatre enthusiasts able to dedicate time to the audio described shows. If you are interested in being involved with this very worthy work and would like more information, please contact Liz Hebden, Front of House Manager
