Volunteering at the Burton at Bideford

If you’re interested in volunteering at the Burton at Bideford – a creative, supportive and interesting venue – then we’d certainly welcome you to join our friendly team. You don’t need to know anything about art, crafts or retail, just have the passion and energy to work with people and get stuck into a range of jobs.

We don’t mind if you’re becoming a volunteer to learn new skills, get some social time, or are working on an arts project at college and want to find out more about the industry – as long as you’re willing to be enthusiastic then you’re welcome to join us. Roles may include:

  • Archive and document items from our permanent collection

  • Help with workshops and events

  • Inform visitors about the exhibitions

There are lots of other roles and opportunities for people at the Burton at Bideford so please do get in touch. A member of staff will be happy to discuss with you what you’d like to do and how we can help you feel fulfilled working with us.
