Vacancy – Volunteer “Arts Cafe Bar” Manager

Cinema regulars will have missed getting drinks and snacks at the Arts Cafe bar, which closed in July. The council have now agreed to our proposal to run the bar ourselves for an hour before each of our screenings. To begin, we plan to serve tea, coffee, soft drinks and small snacks, with a volunteer manager and staff.

The Save the David Lean Cinema Campaign CIC seeks a manager/organiser to act in a voluntary capacity to set up and run a small café and arts bar in the Croydon Clocktower. We plan to open the bar one hour prior to each of our film screenings, i.e. 3 – 4 times a week.
Our ideal would be a person with some catering experience, good organisational skills, and who is reliable and trustworthy. We are not expecting the manager to be present at every session but they would manage and ‘rota’ the volunteer bar staff, be responsible for ordering and monitoring stock, bank cash receipts and report on sales to the David Lean Cinema Campaign treasurer.
Job share welcome. If you are interested in helping us add this additional service for patrons to the David Lean Cinema please get in touch by contacting us via email at or via the Contact Us form on this website.
