There are many ways in which you can make an important contribution to Otley Courthouse’s work and its future. The most immediate is to come along and enjoy Otley Courthouse events and to tell friends about our fantastic art, music, theatre, dance, film and activities programme – not to mention the scrumptious food served in our cafe. Another way of helping is to become an Otley Courthouse Volunteer.

Buttercross - Volunteer Work


Volunteers are the lifeblood of Otley Courthouse. We have over 150 volunteers who participate during the daytime, evenings and weekends in a variety of ways: box office – café – technical support – publicity – stewarding at events – fundraising.  Get to rub shoulders with award-winning artists; be the first to see exciting theatre; muck in with the music and generally have a good time! If you have a couple of hours a week to spare, like to make new friends and use your skills, then why not pop in for a chat.   We also offer work experience placements to students.   Call our Volunteer Coordinator , Jean, on 01943 467216 or email her at volunteer@otleycourthouse.org.uk



Otley Courthouse is a unique development run by people in Otley, West Yorkshire. After an eight year development period we transformed a redundant nineteenth century magistrates court into a unique arts and resource centre for our community.
