Event description

Description

If you are interested in finding out more about volunteering at Knole, come along to one of our free coffee mornings. The coffee morning will start with a short presentation at 10.30am, outlining details of the opportunities that are currently available. Afterwards you'll be able to talk to some of our current volunteers to discuss specific roles in more detail and find out what volunteering means in practice. There will also be the opportunity to get a glimpse of what goes on behind the scenes in this great historic house.

This is a very exciting time to be working at Knole. We are undertaking a £19.8million building and conservation project, in partnership with the Heritage Lottery Fund. 2016 saw the opening of a new Visitor Centre, Bookshop, Brewhouse Cafe and the Gatehouse Tower. This year, a state-of-the-art conservation studio, a new learning centre and half of the conserved showrooms have opened. Work continues in the other showrooms and the attics over the next two years.

Knole's volunteers span a huge range of skills and there are many ways to get involved - helping visitors to get the most out of a visit to our newly-opened conservation studio, assisting the conservation team, helping with school visits, welcoming visitors and providing tours of the showrooms.

We provide a full induction programme and training and in return you get the chance to learn new skills, work in an amazing place and know that you're helping a great cause.

For more information, please contact our volunteer team on 01732 467162 or knolevolunteers@nationaltrust.org.uk.
