Work Placements


We are lucky to have an amazing team of volunteers supporting us, who get involved with a whole range of projects and activities - we couldn’t do what we do without them.

Some of the opportunities we offer …
* meet new people and support the Museums team at fairs, festivals and outdoor events.
* rummage in the archives, as you help our Curators catalogue, document and photograph the collection.

* learn more about Roman times, assisting in the Education department creating and running new family and holiday activities.

Recent projects involving volunteers:
* A pop-up museum of over 70 objects: 'Objects on Demand'

* A buildings research project and audio installation on the construction hoardings around the Town Hall: 'Talking Buildings'
