The coffee morning will start with a short presentation, 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. We provide a full induction programme and training and in return you get the chance to learn new skills, work in an amazing place, make new friends and know that you're helping a great cause. This is an 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. In 2017, a state-of-the-art conservation studio, a learning centre and half of the conserved showrooms opened. Work continues in the other showrooms and the attics until 2019.
