Become a Volunteer

A Little Spare Time?

If you have a little spare time, and are looking for ways to fill it, why not take a look at our volunteer opportunities?

Volunteers are at the heart of our museum and we’re looking for new volunteers of different ages with a diverse range of interests and talents. Whether you’re retired, working part-time, or still in college or school, we’d love to talk to you! 

We’d love to meet people who are interested in history and our heritage!

Most roles require a minimum commitment of half a day a week, and  some roles can even be carried out from home.  Training will be given and knowledge of military history is not necessary.

We are a friendly team, and are happy to be flexible and discuss any special requirements. 

Drop us an email or ring us on 01208 72810.


And march this way, we’d love to meet you!

Let's teach the next generation about our heritage

The Museum’s programme of learning and events is growing, and we’d love to get more people on-board to help deliver school sessions.

And we are always looking for people who like dressing up in period costumes or who would enjoy giving talks and tours to our visitors in the school holidays.
