What will I be doing?

  • Events at the subway are very popular so we normally have a queue of people, stewards will need to help manage the queue
  • Stewards will be briefed about health and safety issues and will be asked to offer appropriate advice to visitors
  • Stewards will be asked to offer support to visitors who may need assistance to access the subway
  • Stewards will be asked to work as part of a team and support each other while working at the subway
Volunteers and visitors

Volunteers and visitors

What impact will this have?

  • The subway is still a semi derelict building where events need to be carefully managed, volunteer stewards are an essential part of the team who make events at the subway possible
  • There are no lifts or ramps to facilitate wheelchair access at the subway but stewards are able to support people with mobility or sensory issues to access the space
  • Prior to 2012 the subway was closed to the public. Our dedicated team of volunteers has been able to change that
