Volunteer at Gunby Hall and Gardens

We could not operate without our small army of volunteers. We currently have vacancies for house volunteers and visitor experience volunteers in the car park and are also looking for piano volunteers.

Have a look here for more opportunities in your area, other than the ones listed below.

House Volunteers 

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

Visitor Experience Volunteers

Help the visitor experience team with greeting visitors in the car park 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.
