Concert Steward

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.

About St Giles' Cathedral

St Giles’ has been part of the city since 1124, with much of the building you see today constructed in the late 1300s and 1400s. It has been home to many key events in Scotland’s history and is the birthplace of the Presbyterianism and the Scottish Reformation. There are centuries of architecture and art here, from medieval stonework to Victorian windows, and the neo-Gothic Thistle Chapel. Not only are we an important historical site, but also a working parish church and cultural centre, hosting various musicians from around the world for evening and lunchtime concerts.

Experience Required

Friendly, welcoming, helpful, good communication skills and be able to convey your knowledge, interest and enthusiasm to others. No experience of stewarding or the music sector is necessary.

Training Details

Our staff and other volunteers will provide a breakdown of the role, and will always be on hand should you have any queries.

Location/Travel Details
