Making a real difference at Tredegar House

Tredegar House would not be the property it is today without the help of its dedicated army of volunteers.

Around 300 volunteers pull together each season to ensure the House and Gardens can open every day from mid-February until the end of October, and then again during December. As a charity, this support is invaluable to us.

Last year, 90,000 visitors were welcomed through our doors to relax in the formal gardens, explore the history of the House and listen to stories about the Morgan family. It is volunteers who help keep our Gardens in pristine condition and it is volunteers who passionately relay stories Evan Morgan’s menagerie of animals or Godfrey Morgan’s philanthropic endeavours.

" The volunteers in the house were some of the most well informed I've come across. The stories they told about the family and staff who lived in the house really brought the place alive."
- Visitor, October 2016

But it is not just those working out in the open who are making a difference. We also have volunteers working behind the scenes to ensure our stories are recorded safely in our archives, to help with the administrative running of the property and to help with property maintenance.

By joining our team you will be able to make a real impact on the heritage industry, allowing people in Newport and beyond to enjoy the wonders of this special place, and to keep Tredegar House here for ever, for everyone.  

Volunteers don't just help us tell our stories, they also help us take care of Tredegar House
