FILM TOWN TEAM

As Alchemy’s year-round programme expands, its volunteer programme continues to thrive. Taking pride in its warmth and inclusivity, Alchemy invites a wide range of people to help support the delivery of high quality events in Hawick, Scotland’s film town.

Our Film Town Team consists of volunteers from a wide range of backgrounds, from those with technical expertise to students building up experience, from those looking for new challenges to those wanting to meet new folk. 

Depending on the role, volunteers will receive access to film screenings, free meals, training and – in the case of volunteer drivers – a year’s membership with Teviot Electric Car Club.

Read through Alchemy’s various volunteer roles below.

You can find our Volunteer Policy here, and sign up to join the team by emailing: hello@alchemyfilmandarts.org.uk.
