Do you want to be part of an award winning museum and gallery which punches above its weight and produces innovative, exciting and inspiring exhibitions and events ?
We need people who are positive and committed to managing an almost exclusively volunteer-run museum visitor attraction, gallery and community resource. Individuals who feel they can help us deliver our strategic plan. As a trustee you will play a vital role in setting our direction, overseeing our work and working with us to improve what we do.
Becoming a Trustee of Bailiffgate will give you the chance to be a part of an award-winning charity. It will also enable you to be part of an organisation that reaches into and across the community through our outreach and community projects and a wealth of activity often linked to education in its broadest sense.
Established in 2002, Bailiffgate Museum & Gallery is a multi-award-winning museum located in a beautiful, grade 2 listed, former Catholic church in the centre of Alnwick. It is run by volunteers (currently 45) and attracts around 10,000 visitors per year-although we want to increase this by 2021. Our vision of “Heritage at the heart of the Community” places local history, culture, folklore, traditions, stories, art and the environment at the centre of everything we do. Through our collection, exhibitions, events and projects we work towards understanding, recording, sharing and celebrating the heritage of Alnwick and the surrounding area for the benefit of both local people and visitors.
We want to hear from anyone who wants to be part of our ambitious team. You will help us deliver our aims and can offer at least 3 hours or more a month to volunteer with us.
