Volunteering at Blakesley Hall

At Blakesley Hall we have a team of wonderfully active volunteers who really enhance the visitor experience for everyone who comes to see this lovely site. From our Gardeners to our team of Heritage Interpreters, the volunteers at Blakesley give such energy to the site that it’s impossible not to fall in love with the place.

Here the volunteers welcome visitors to the Hall on a daily basis and help to enthuse everyone with the stories of Blakesley. Some of our team help out with family craft activities and many now deliver their own guided tours. Our fabulous team really are ambassadors for this character filled heritage site and are often involved with event days too. 

Read about Carol, one of our House Guides experience of being “Nurse Teddy” for our Teddy Bear’s Picnic.

There are so many stories and so much fascinating history behind this site that you’ll be utterly spoilt if you have a passion for local history. Another of our volunteers, Dorothy, has written a lovely piece called Life imitates Art in Tudor Birmingham .

Blakesley Hall is open to the public from April – November and we normally recruit new members to Team Blakesley in March each year. See current Volunteer Opportunities at Birmingham Museums.
