Volunteering with The Arts Society Cotswolds

Heritage Volunteering

Heritage Volunteering with The Arts Society Cotswolds provides opportunities to learn new skills, meet people with similar interests and support the arts in a wide range of community activities

Some volunteer at the Museum in Standlake and at the Tolsey Museum in Burford. Others inform the public or help out in their gardens at Kelmscott Manor near Lechlade (owned and managed by the Society of Antiquaries) or at several National Trust properties.

Depending on the availability of leaders, volunteers and suitable projects other opportunities might include:

  • on-site conservation of books, manuscripts, archives and maps,
  • cataloguing documents and archival listing
  • the preventative conservation of textiles, replica work and creation of period costumes

Our members also produced a guide booklet documenting the history of several interesting buildings on the historic High Street in Burford.

Volunteering to Support TASC

The Society very much appreciates the many volunteers who offer invaluable support on a monthly basis: registering members and visitors on arrival, maintaining the notice board and helping to distribute posters and flyers, transporting lecturers to and from the train station or entertaining them overnight. These are all essential if not always very visible tasks.

If you are interested in exploring whether any of these or any other volunteer opportunities might be of suitable for your skills, please have a word with Carolyn Walton or Peter Martin.
