Lincolnite of the week: 20 years of theatre volunteering

As the New Theatre Royal in Lincoln celebrates its 125th birthday, it has been shining a spotlight on its volunteers.

The theatre is home to more than 40 volunteers, working at the front of house or behind the scenes.

Lincoln’s most iconic theatre was taken on by new owners two years ago, and it has undergone a real transformation.

The longest serving volunteer at the New Theatre Royal is Lesley Hedley, with over twenty years under her belt.

So, why does Lesley do it? Watch the full video to find out why she is our Lincolnite of the week.
