Help us bring the outbuildings to life…

Are you interested in joining our volunteer team and giving our visitors a taste of what Charlecote was like back in the day? We’re looking for enthusiastic and personable individuals to bring our very special place to life showing what it was like for a Victorian servant ‘below stairs’!

Charlecote laundry

We need people to help us bring the Victorian kitchen, laundry and coach houses to life. These areas used to be a hive of activity with staff bustling to and fro. Washing the family linens, tending to the horses, working in the tack room, brewing the beer… it was all happening!

But it is a little quiet at the moment.

We’d like to change this.

Imagine sitting by a cosy fire in our tack room, surrounded by history!

For a number of years, we have had costumed volunteers working in the kitchens. Our visitors have loved seeing this space used as it should. Cooking on the range, cleaning the pots and making rag rugs have created a great atmosphere. We have had some wonderful feedback and this is what we’d like to roll out in the other areas.

Interested?

Come along and find out more at our drop-in sessions on….

• Friday 4th December, 11am-2pm
• Tuesday 8th December, 11am-2pm
