Education Activities and Events:
The museum hosts plenty of weekend and holiday events, and as a volunteer you can get involved in craft activities, object interpretation and interacting with the public. We are already planning our activities for 2011, which will include half-term, Easter and summer holiday workshops and events. The major one day events will see the return of Gladiators, Vikings and the Christmas event, all held in the Museums Quarter on High Street, so plenty to keep everyone busy!
If you are interested in any of the above activities please contact us at email@example.com, or telephone 01482 613902. Please tell us why you want to become a volunteer and which of the above areas you would like to get involved with. The more information we have about you the easier it will be to find you a placement.
