Fuller descriptions just some of the roles available:
Would you like to help at one of our events or family activities?

LIVING HISTORY VOLUNTEER
Can you spare one Sunday afternoon a month (or every other month) – or even just once a year?
Become the village black smith, village shopkeeper, a nun in the abbey or one of the many other roles. We need friendly and approachable people who can take on the role of someone from Denny’s past and bring its story to life.
The museum will provide you with a costume, lunch and full training on your chosen character. You will need to talk to our visitors in character and enable them engage with our collections of Cambridgeshire rural life.
We welcome applications to join our education team to help with school groups during term times.
You must enjoy working with children in a fun, relaxed, and purposeful atmosphere, and be prepared to volunteer on a regular basis (though this is unlikely to be more than 1 to 2 days a month), and who would be confident in working with groups on their own.
For school sessions, thorough training and induction will be provided, and volunteers will only be given tasks they feel confident with. The groups would usually consist of less than 15 children, generally aged between 5 and 11.
