Concert Steward

  • VO88435


Description

St Giles’ at Six concerts are at 6pm every Sunday, and are free to enter, with a collection at the end for anyone who wishes to donate. As a Concert Steward, you would be responsible for several duties, including welcoming the audience and showing them to seats, assisting with the Test and Protect system, and helping with general queries on the night. It’s a great opportunity to do some volunteering in Edinburgh’s historic High Kirk, whilst experiencing music from performers across the globe.

Organisation aims and objectives

St Giles’ Cathedral is the historic City Church of Edinburgh. With its famed crown spire it stands on the Royal Mile between Edinburgh Castle and the Palace of Holyroodhouse. Also known as the High Kirk of Edinburgh, it is the Mother Church of Presbyterianism and contains the Chapel of the Order of the Thistle (Scotland’s chivalric company of knights and Ladies chosen by The Queen.)
