Other ways to volunteer

Heritage Open Days couldn’t happen without the commitment and enthusiasm of local volunteers.

Some 40,000 people from all walks of life are involved in opening up places and staging events every year. And so could you!

Help out at a local event

Lots of local organisers welcome new helpers, and there are many different ways you can help. Here are just a few examples:

  • Greet visitors
  • Guide tours
  • Research the history of a place
  • Sell refreshments
  • Collect feedback
  • Take photographs
  • Distribute leaflets
  • Spread the word through social media

If you are interested in volunteering in your area, please contact the Heritage Open Days team and we will put you in touch with our local partners.
