Front of House

At the Dronfield Hall Barn we have a fantastic team of volunteers who give up their time to help us. They fulfil a wide range of Front of House roles including greeting our visitors, supervising exhibitions, leading tours and lending a hand at special events.

Some volunteers come in once a week, but others just help out whenever they can. They play a vital role at the Barn and are fundamental to our success and sustainability.

Skills Required:

  • Are you friendly, enthusiastic and good at speaking to new people?
  • Do you have a passion for your local community and its heritage?

“Hi I’m Jean and I’m a volunteer gardener at Dronfield Hall Barn. Over the past 6 years we have developed what was a building site into the gardens you see today. All volunteers are encouraged to do the tasks they enjoy, develop new skills and share their own skills with us”.


‘Working together to deliver exciting arts, heritage and natural history activities from a historic venue’

Dronfield Heritage Trust aims to maintain the Barn as the focal point for our community and in the future become the wider information point and hub for the district, promoting the protection and conservation of the area.

The Barn has recently moved it’s archive to the Dronfield Library and is at the start of creating a fully formed archive. We are at the beginning of this project and need your help.

Tasks will include repackaging and box listing. Volunteers will also need to match records with previous catalogues and improve location descriptions where necessary on an Excel spreadsheet. You will be working in a small but dedicated team.

The Archives team also carry out research for publications and exhibitions at the barn.

Volunteers will preferably be available for Tuesday mornings.

Skills Required:

  • Organised and flexible, with good IT skills, good knowledge of local history would be a bonus.
  • Reasonable level of heavy lifting/fitness – not essential.
