Vikings & Volunteers



The Atkinson, Southport’s arts and culture hub, is looking for volunteers to support a new exhibition. 

Viking: Rediscover the Legend opens on Saturday 31st March 2018, and will feature some of the most significant Viking treasure hoards ever discovered in Britain. The Atkinson will be the only North West venue to host this exhibition in 2018, making this an even more exciting volunteering opportunity.

Volunteers will be based in The Atkinson’s art galleries during the exhibition, which is from the 31st March until 7th July. The role will involved meeting and greeting visitors, ensuring the displays are looked after and monitored properly, and providing additional information about the exhibition as required.

A role description can be downloaded via the Atkinson’s website.

No specific experience is required, as volunteers will receive full training and support. So whether you are a history buff or just enjoy working with the public, this is sure to be a great volunteering opportunity.

Volunteers will be needed from 10am until 4pm, with shifts of 10am until 1pm and 1pm until 4pm being available.

The deadline to apply to volunteer is Monday 19th March, and you can obtain an application form by emailing, downloading it from The Atkinson website here or  collect a hard copy from The Atkinson’s Box Office/Shop.
