We Love Our Friends & Volunteers Day

Every year around Valentine’s Day we celebrate our friends and volunteers!

Drop in on the 13th February to find out how you might be able to support the museum in this very special year! The 300th anniversary of Gilbert White’s birth.

Meet other volunteers and friends, as well as staff and find out what opportunities there are to get involved.

We are especially keen to meet anyone who is able to help with education or events!

If you would like to attend just drop in between 11am and 3pm or let us know by emailing
