Volunteer Tudors working on Mary Arden's Farm


Volunteers play a crucial role within the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust, supporting our staff and enhancing the experience of our visitors. 

Volunteers help with a wide variety of tasks both behind the scenes and front of house, from farming and archaeology to room hosting, living history and retail. Some people even volunteer from the comfort of their own home.

Whatever your interests, we can promise you a rewarding experience that allows you to meet new people, learn new skills and contribute to the important Shakespeare-centred work carried out at the Trust.

All you need are a few hours to spare and lots of enthusiasm. Volunteers must be aged 16+. Take a look at our current volunteering opportunities and find out more about what we have to offer.

Corporate Volunteering

Through corporate volunteering, businesses contribute towards a worthy cause at the same time as reaping the benefits for their employees. Voluntary projects help to develop new skills and promote team building, well-being and job satisfaction, which all leads to higher employee retention rates and a positive corporate culture. So everyone's a winner!

If you are interested in bringing a corporate group to volunteer at the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust, please call +44 [0]1789 204016 and ask to speak to Emma Lorberg.
