Volunteers assist the Museum in many ways, from stewarding our furnished buildings and exhibitions during opening hours to assisting with the Museum administration. Volunteers also help during our special events and activities, as well as helping with maintenance, conservation and gardening.

We are always keen to attract new volunteers. We offer full training and support, out of pocket expenses and discounts on refreshments in our Edwardian Tea Room.

Group Volunteering

Avoncroft Museum has a number of opportunities for groups of up to 30 people who would like to undertake a voluntary project. This can be a single day volunteering or a more regular arrangement. The activities are fully risk assessed and insured.

Examples of projects are:

  • Creating raised gardening beds so we can grow produce to use in our Edwardian Tea Room
  • Creating a new wildlife pond
  • Planting and weeding the Museum’s period gardens
