We believe Volunteers are at the heart of our Museum

Holst volunteer in costume

The Holst Birthplace Museum welcomes volunteers as an essential part of our organisation. Our volunteers join us to make friends, to pursue an interest, to further their careers or just for fun! No prior knowledge of Gustav Holst or Victorian history is needed.
