Meet the Volunteer – Lesley Richardson

As part of our 40th Anniversary celebrations, we thought you might like to get to know a little more about the staff and volunteers that make us who we are!


  • Why did you volunteer with Melton Theatre?
    • To see how the theatre is run; to see shows I might not normally choose to see; to feel I was being useful; and to contribute to the community
  • What do you enjoy about volunteering here?
    • The atmosphere; the different people you meet; and the variety of shows
  • How long have you volunteered with us?
    • 2 years
  • Who or what has been your favourite star/show/experience with us?
    • Marcus Brigstocke – I can’t wait for him to come back again this season!
  • Can you let us know of your funniest experience/incident at the Theatre?
    • Henning Wehn entered through the rear doors of the theatre to begin his show, I didn’t know and managed to walk in to him as he did it!
  • What was the first show you remember here?
    • TMMTC’s production of Oh What A Lovely War


  • How has the theatre changed over the years?
    • The refurbishment of the college was still ongoing when I first volunteered, it is now a much more modern facility!
  • What does the theatre mean to you?
    • It’s a vibrant place for people to come together and enjoy themselves. I come to the theatre a lot as a patron with my partner – mainly for the comedy shows. The theatre is a great facility for the local community.
