All of our volunteers are arts professionals. Many of them have been with us for years, some from the very beginning in 1999. Volunteers come to us through word of mouth, with artists coming along to support their friends, falling in love with what they see and wanting to become a part of it. Our volunteers are a network of friends who make professional connections both within and outside of Scene & Heard.

We now have over 450 volunteers – actors and directors, writers and script editors, composers and artists – who give their time and dedicate their talents to us and to the children of Somers Town. All are checked with the Disclosure and Barring Service (formerly CRB) and trained in child protection and our unique style of playwriting.

We could not do the work that we do without them. Their generosity of spirit, their commitment and their enthusiasm make Scene & Heard the success that it is. We are delighted that their dedication was recognized by HM The Queen in 2011 with the presentation of the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.

Our actors regularly perform at The Royal Shakespeare Company, The National Theatre, The Globe Theatre, in the West End and in repertory theatres throughout the UK. They are in Coronation Street, EastEnders, Casualty, Doctors and numerous TV dramas and comedy shows as well as being heard in BBC Radio drama and comedies. Our writers write for a range of theatre and television, including Casualty, Holby City, Grange Hill, Hollyoaks, CBeebies, CBBC, as well as many comedy and sketch shows.

“It’s supposed to be about building up the esteem of the children involved but actually it does the same for the actors.  The experience has integrity, great value and has formed a lasting memory…. I think it is magical and life-changing for all involved.”  –  Scene & Heard actor
