Preston Park needs you!

We depend upon the 200 volunteers who help to bring the museum, park and gardens to life. There are many different roles to get involved with, from public engagement, to gardening, to researching objects within our collection.

You can decide how much time you would like to commit and as one of our volunteers, you will get the opportunity to learn new things, meet new people and enjoy extra activities that we offer throughout the year.
