Volunteering opportunity at Sacrewell, Peterborough

Volunteer research historians:

This is an exciting behind the scenes opportunity, exploring items which haven’t been accessed for decades. You will be working alongside the collection / archive team to discover the stories behind the fascinating collection at Sacrewell helping to bring the place to life for our visitors.

What’s involved? 

  • Working as part of a small team to identify key collection items 
  • Finding stories from our archive material
  • Talking and writing with staff and other volunteers about your ideas and which stories speak to you
  • Working with others or independently to discover more about the collection and the people behind them – online, in person and even interviews
  • Becoming familiar with and then following our Health and Safety Policy at all times
  • There may be other activities where we could use your help!

We welcome people who… are interested in history and are keen to share this. This role may involve researching indoors but will also involve getting out and about on our farm.
