Our student volunteers play a crucial role in helping to make the Picture Gallery and Art Collections accessible and enjoyable to a wide variety of visitors.

What’s involved?

Volunteers welcome visitors to the Picture Gallery during public opening hours, answer questions about the collections from visitors, record visitor numbers and their feedback, and help with lunchtime talks. They also assist in planning art activities and preparing materials for family open days.

Volunteers tend to do about 2-3 shifts a term and one Saturday/ Sunday a term.


Recruitment for the 2019/20 academic year is now closed. Recruitment for the 2020/21 academic year will open in September 2020.
