A BIG THANK YOU for all the hours, that are volunteered by members, it is very much appreciated. Whether it is helping on a day to day basis to supervise the Gallery or joining Working Groups to plan events for the future.

No matter what your skills or interests are, there are plenty of roles to be filled through volunteering.

One shift a month in the gallery makes all the difference to us. Full induction training is given, so no experience necessary.

Shift times:

Tuesday to Friday: 11.00 am - 3.00 pm   

Saturday: 10.00 am - 1.30 pm and 1.30 pm - 5.00 pm

Sunday: 11.00 am - 1.30 pm and 1.30 pm - 4.00 pm
