Volunteer at Gunby Hall and Gardens

We could not operate without our small army of volunteers. We currently have vacancies for welcome hosts, room guides, pianists and garden hosts.

Room guides

Welcoming our visitors with a smile and information about our collection is what room guides do best. Training and induction is provided on the job. The minimum commitment is two 3-hour shifts per month. Come and join our lovely team.

Garden hosts

Making sure our visitors enjoy the Gunby Gardens is the main task of our garden hosts. Helping with directions and giving some information about plants is also part of the role. Become part of our enthusiastic team.

Welcome hosts

Help the visitor service team with greeting visitors in the reception area. At times you will be the first person our visitors meet, so your welcoming smile is very important.

Volunteer Piano Players

Music helps bring a house to life and live music is the best kind of all. Our fantastic Blüthner grand piano can feel neglected and needs an accomplished pianist to tinkle its ivories and enthrall the visitors.
