DO you love history and love dressing up?

hen The Farmland Museum at Denny Abbey is inviting you to be part of a new and exciting museum project at this historic site just along the A10 from Stretham.

The museum is looking for volunteer costumed interpreters to join them once a month on Sundays, for their ‘living museum’. The museum team need friendly and approachable people who can take on the role of someone from Denny’s past and bring its story to life.

Volunteers could be the village black smith, or work in the village shop, or even be nun in the abbey

Adam Macro from the museum said: “You will need to talk to our visitors in character, and spark their interest in the museum’s fascinating collections of Cambridgeshire rural life.

You may also want to watch:

“We will provide you with a costume, lunch and full training on your chosen character. “

Anyone interested in getting involved, as a costumed interpreter or any other volunteering opportunities at the museum, should get in contact with Adam on 01223 860988 or email info@farmlandmuseum.org.uk.
