Volunteering at John Bunyan Museum & Library

This fantastic gem of a museum, in the heart of Bedford’s Cultural Quarter, is thriving thanks to its team of dedicated volunteers of all ages. 2020 looks set to be another busy year, with lots of events and activities planned, and we really need people to help support the museum in a number of ways.


We always need volunteers to help welcome visitors, and keep the museum open; but this year we are also looking for volunteers with experience working with schools, marketing (especially social media), retail, or an interest in working with the collections.

Curator, Nicola Sherhod said,


“The museum would simply not exist if it wasn’t for our fantastic team of enthusiastic and dedicated volunteers. They are involved in all areas of the museum, and their ideas and hard work keep the museum interesting and fun. Volunteering is such a great way to meet people, develop transferable skills, and support a great part of Bedford’s heritage!”
