THE ARTS SOCIETY BROMLEY

THE ARTS SOCIETY BROMLEY Heritage Volunteers are committed non-specialist volunteers who work under the guidance of curators and other professionals to help conserve our heritage.

Current membership of THE ARTS SOCIETY BROMLEY qualifies all members to participate in the Heritage Volunteer Scheme.

 Heritage Volunteers undertake projects for:

  • museums
  • National Trust properties
  • historic houses
  • libraries and gardens

They give their time to care for collections, record documents and act as guides and stewards.

Current projects include:

  • On-site conservation of books, manuscripts, archives and maps
  • Cataloguing documents and archival listing
  • Conservation of arms and armour, medals and military silver
  • Preventative conservation of textiles, replica work and creation of period costumes
  • Guiding and stewarding in museums, historic houses and gardens

Become a Heritage Volunteer

Volunteers are trained by professional conservators, advisors or curators.
All organisations, which are based in London and parts of the South East, show great flexibility with the hours that volunteers can offer.

VOLUNTEERING AT KNOLE HOUSE, Sevenoaks

There is a great opportunity for volunteering at Knole House which has recently won funding for a £20 million refit.  Volunteers are required in a wide variety of roles: these include Room Stewards, Garden Stewards, Walk Leaders, Tour Leaders, Tailenders and Conservation, to name a few. Full training will be given and petrol allowance up to 40p per mile round trip.

If volunteering in a 600 year-old  historic building appeals to you please contact Hazel Littlejohn, Heritage Volunteer Co-ordinator.  You can do this via email by going to About us/Contact Us or using the telephone number on your membership card.
