As part of our Remembrance exhibitions this year we are looking for additional support in the following areas:

Gallery and Front of House (PRIORITY ROLE)

Additional support required during ‘the Weeping Window’ tour between 23rd May and 8th July.  Also, assistance with our Remembrance exhibitions during the year.

Veteran’s Lunch Club

From July we will be establishing a monthly Veteran’s Lunch Club at the Museum – can you help?

Exhibitions Installation and dismantling

Volunteers who are happy to help build our exhibitions – ie. hang paintings, paint panels – and assist with the dismantling afterwards.


Help with Community workshops around the county and holiday workshops during the summer.  Would suit someone who is happy to work with families.


Support with one-off events such as Armed Forces Day or our ‘Who Do You Think You Are?’ days working with a member of Museum staff .


Are you comfortable talking to people and asking them questions?  We will be using computer tablets to ask about our event and activities this year and we need your support!

Oral History

We want to add to our archive and build up a bank of oral histories preserving the past.  Full training will be given and you will work with a member of staff.
