Volunteers play a huge role in the running of Dingles Fairground Heritage Centre. From operating the attractions to showing people round and even looking after the effects in the Ghost Train!

We know your time is precious to you, so here is why volunteering with us will make a difference to you.

  • To help us secure the collection for future generations
  • A full training programme with talks from industry experts
  • Behind the scenes access

  • To gain work experience
  • To make new friends and be part of a team

What role and how to apply:

We are currently looking for volunteers to help us with fundraising, carpentary, collections care and education visits. We are constantly adding new opportunities and we’d love to hear from you if you have a skill you’d like to share.
