Visitor Welcome

The Folly attracts a wide range of visitors each year. As the first face our visitors see, the welcome team guarantees a warm greeting for every visitor. The visitor welcome volunteers answer questions about The Folly and help interpret the building to our visitors. They also process admission tickets and sales through the till on the admissions desk.

The team helps make The Folly accessible to everyone by opening and closing up, and monitoring exhibition spaces for anything out of place.

“What I love about working on the desk at The Folly is that “wow” moment when people come in from the outside” – Volunteer Kate C

I have made many new friends at The Folly. What I like most about volunteering is talking to visitors about the history of the building and the people who have lived here over the centuries” – Volunteer Marjorie B
