Bradgate Park Steward Volunteer

Our Volunteer Stewards help visitors make the most of our events and open days in areas such as the Ruins and Old John. An interest in visitor engagement is essential but this is less formalised than the Tour Guide role so you don’t worry if you don’t know all the facts and figures off hand. If you think you’d enjoying sharing the story of the Park but you don’t fancy leading a full tour, volunteering as a Steward may be more up your street!
