Volunteer Open Days

Home, Press

6 -7 June, 10.30am – 5pm
The Clore Learning Space, the Holburne Museum.

The Holburne Museum will be hosting Volunteer Open Days on the 6 and 7 of June to celebrate the achievements of our dedicated team of volunteers, while hopefully encouraging others within the community to consider volunteering with us in the future.

The role of volunteer at the Holburne is considered as one of the most important within the organisation. Our team of 200 volunteers all bring their own unique abilities and skills to the team, providing the Holburne with some of the most dedicated and friendly volunteers in the B&NES area.

Our volunteers undertake a wide variety of key roles from gallery stewards to curatorial assistants, from gardeners to librarians. The Museum creates an engaging and enriching environment for its volunteers, as well as providing the opportunity to further individual knowledge and skills through training and volunteer lectures.

Without our volunteer team the Holburne simply could not open to the public. The Museum’s volunteers are considered as one of our biggest donor groups, giving over 22,000 hours, nearly £130,000 in time over the last 12 months.

Our Open Days aim to celebrate this momentous achievement through our volunteers’ personal experiences at the Holburne as well as a number of volunteering success stories. The Open Days are also aimed at demonstrating to potential volunteers and interested members of the public the sheer variety of potential opportunities we offer and will outline the wealth of experiences and skills that can be gained through volunteering at the Holburne Museum. We hope that you can join us.
