Join our team of volunteers

Our volunteers come from all walks of life - from students looking for work experience, to people looking for something different to do with their days off and those looking to keep busy after retiring.

If you live locally and enjoy history, meeting people and sharing stories, then why not join our friendly team and help us to bring Montacute to life.

From helping to tell stories about the house and its history, to getting outside and helping the garden team, helping in our café and shop, we’re sure to have a role for you.
