Volunteers Welcome!

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.

All our volunteers benefit from free group visits to other museums and attractions nearby, a discount in our coffee house and museum shop, and a free tea or coffee while volunteering.

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

“I’ve been a volunteer for over seven years no and I still enjoy it. We’re a fairly small team, so I always feel like I can help make a real contribution to a local landmark” -Volunteer Heather M
