Discover volunteering opportunities at Felbrigg Hall. From supporting the garden team to helping out with events, there is something for everyone to get involved with.

Volunteer with us

Our volunteers are quite simply the lifeblood of our special place. Without them, we couldn't fulfil our conservation work and visitors would miss their valuable contribution in bringing our place to life. If you're interested in joining our network of volunteers, we have a variety of different opportunities for you to get involved.

Why join us?

There are lots of reasons to join us; making the move to volunteer could be the best decision you ever make.

  • Become part of a friendly and dedicated team
  • Meet people from all walks of life and forge new friendships
  • Utilise your existing skills and learn new ones
  • Strengthen your CV and help to develop your career
  • Enjoy the great outdoors
  • Learn about the history of this special place.

There are a number of opportunities available at Felbrigg Hall and nearby Sheringham Park, with new roles being recruited on a regular basis. Do you have green fingers? You could join the gardening team. Have a passion for history? Become a room guide in the hall. Love meeting new people? Come and help with our programme of events. Bookworm? The second-hand bookshop needs people just like you.

Jan and John

Jan and John are two of our volunteers that support our second-hand bookshop by sorting through donations and organising books to go out onto the shelves. Supported by two other volunteers, Genny and William, they make up our small book sorting team and are part of our wider bookshop volunteers that help run the second-hand bookshop.
