Do you have an interest in historic houses? Do you enjoy interacting with visitors?
Volunteering in a beautiful place like Lamport can be a great way to enjoy our county’s rich history, interact with our many visitors and of course, can be great fun. We are actively looking for people to join our team of dedicated volunteers to help visitors get full enjoyment from their visit.
Training will be given to applicants interested in the following positions. Applicants can apply for one position, or several.
Here at Lamport Hall we have a fantastic team of loyal volunteers and we are looking to grow this wonderful team. Recently, one of our many dedicated and passionate volunteers, Christi, who started her role as a volunteer at the Hall in the early 1990s, has taken the time to talk to us about her experience:
What made you want to volunteer? I’d left teaching to help with my husband’s consultancy business and also worked locally part-time with Mencap. I always loved history and was impressed with the architecture and style of Lamport Hall and needed something to occupy my spare time – which might also provide friendship and team work.
What’s your favourite thing about volunteering at Lamport? I love the Isham history, the classical architecture and garden/estate setting. Also the helpfulness and camaraderie of the staff and volunteers team. We do have some very pleasant visitors.
Do you have a favourite room, object or painting in the house? I especially love the High Room for its grandeur and royal portraits. Also Sir Thomas’s acquisitions, particularly the cow bell! Plus the painting of Salome with the head of John the Baptist by Elisabetta Sirani.
