Become part of the team at Shaw's Corner
Why Michael volunteers
"Because of the complexity of the man. I love his [Shaw's] observations on life, his fellow man, his hatred of injustice, his courage to stick to his beliefs. In short a complete and fascinating man! A titan! You can feel his physical presence in the house. Just completed my thirteenth season, hooked for life!"
Why Valerie volunteers
"As a Room and Garden Guide, I enjoy meeting people, listening to their interests and drawing on my knowledge of Shaw. It is especially rewarding talking to visitors from abroad as many have a good knowledge of Shaw and his contemporaries."
Why Terry & Val volunteer
"We have long been supporters of the National Trust, and hoped that on retirement an opportunity would arise to help with its work. The added and most important ingredient being our interest in the theatre and my [Terry] having worked for Shaw's country solicitor Ivo Curral. His infatuation with GBS was infectious!"
