Volunteering opportunities at the 1620s House and Garden

We are not currently recruiting to our volunteer role, but if you are interested in any of them please contact richard.knox@leics.gov.uk and we’ll be in touch when we are.

Would you like to spend one day a week or one day a fortnight engaging with visitors in the lovely setting of our furnished rooms? Or perhaps you would rather be working in the garden or assisting at Events.
