Volunteers Welcome!

We are looking for friendly Visitor Welcome volunteers to join the team. You will open and close the galleries, welcome visitors and sell gifts in the shop.

You’ll be part of a great team striving to make the Museum of North Craven Life the best it can be. Training will be provided and no previous experience is necessary.

Want to find out if it’s for you? We’re having an Open Day! Drop in on Saturday 12th June anytime from 11am-3pm and talk to staff and volunteers, have a cuppa with us and learn more about what it’s like to volunteer.

We look forward to meeting you!


Be part of something special!

Our volunteers welcome visitors, care for our buildings and work with our museum collections. They are a vital part of all the work that we do. We are always keen to hear from anyone interested in joining our volunteer team.

There are lots of opportunities to meet new people, learn new skills or put those you already have to good use: welcoming visitors to the museum, learning more about the area as a researcher, or providing technical help with our exhibitions.

We are always glad to welcome new people to The Folly team, from keen gardeners to IT-savvy volunteers recording our collection, from tour guides to visitor welcome volunteers. Training is provided and we are happy to discuss ways in which you might want to get involved.

Please contact us if you would like to find out more.
