Become a volunteer

Join the Armitt family

Are you interested in heritage and meeting new people? Then get involved as a volunteer with The Armitt today. Volunteering is a great way to connect with others, learn something new, and give back to the community. 

With a fascinating collection of artefacts and an exciting future ahead, The Armitt is the perfect place to get actively involved. 

We are currently looking for:
Front of House volunteers
Gallery Hosts
Garden/Maintenance volunteers

So, if you’d like to find out more and discuss our opportunities, please email or call 015394 31212 for more details.

Please consider donating to The Armitt today.
All donations are gratefully received and go towards supporting the preservation of the museum and the collections. The Armitt is an independent trust and registered charity. We rely on income from admissions, shop sales, and events to keep open for everyone to enjoy. 


We, the Friends, exist to support the Armitt Collection and encourage research and general interest in the English Lake District. Amongst the many ways we help are by assisting in the purchase of additions to the collection, sponsoring specific projects by the Trust, providing a forum and interest group for the many volunteers who put so much time into the Trust; and helping to publicise the Armitt.

Friends benefit from:
FREE ENTRY where charges are made; invitations to attend special Friends’ events including private views, visits to places of interest and social events; the chance to meet like-minded people who share an enthusiasm for ensuring this unique collection flourishes into the future.

Join us today!
