This month in 2015

The volunteer team were gathering and sharing their feedback about the trip to visit Ripon Museum Trust’s volunteers as well as generally recovering from their collective efforts to support the Museum over the busy half term period.


This month in 2016

In 2016 the Wacky Wednesday team are busy preparing for the third annual Wacky Wednesday Christmas special which will take place on 7 December. Other members of the Volunteer team have stepped up to help on the day so everyone is getting into the Christmas spirit of giving which particularly connects to the spirit of our new Christmas exhibition.

The volunteer team now includes an established volunteer group of performance poets. The Coal Shed poets will be performing at the opening of the special Christmas exhibition, ‘A Share of a Pensioner’s Christmas’. They have also written work, which will be performed at the next memorial garden dedication on 26 November. 

For more details, please visit the Coalshed poets page

The Museum is interested in any other community based volunteer artists or crafters who would like to support the Museum by sharing their expertise.
