Volunteer: How can you help The Folly?

Volunteer Stewards for The Folly

The stewards' role is to prepare the building for opening and closing, welcome visitors, take admission money and deal with sales from the small shop. Stewards work in pairs to ensure that the museum is fully supervised and that visitors have an enjoyable experience when they visit The Folly. This work is essential to the running of The Folly, in order to be able to continue with the regular openings. Without this group of volunteers the museum would not be able to admit the public and as ticket sales are the main source of income for the museum it is especially important that we can continue to do so.
