Join an award-winning team!
With hundreds of visitors stepping inside every month (sometimes every week) we’re always looking for new people to join our team of volunteer guides.
Winners of ‘Team of the Year’ at the 2019 Pride of Stratford Awards, our volunteers work in pairs, for a couple of hours at a time, welcoming visitors, talking to them about the Chapel and the paintings, and helping to share Stratford’s best-kept secret.
Full training is given – you don’t need any prior experience to get started, but you do need to enjoy talking to people. It’s a wonderful opportunity to be part of a great team and a really exciting project – and to meet people from all over the world.
Why volunteer with us?
- Meet new people from all around the world
- Learn something new
- Develop a new or existing skill
- Create new relationships
- Feel connected to Stratford town

Whether you can spare a little time or a lot, please get in touch with us – even 2 or 3 hours as often as you can manage would be a huge help.
For chat about getting involved, please call 01789 207117 or email: email@example.com
A huge thank you to all of those who already volunteer with us – we couldn’t do it without you!
“There always seems to be something going on! So, if you’re looking for an interesting, flexible volunteering opportunity right in the centre of town, this could be it!”

“One of the most enjoyable aspects of volunteering has been meeting and getting to know the other volunteers and talking to visitors from all over the world.”
RODGER PALMER, GUILD CHAPEL VOLUNTEER
“When I started at the Chapel, I didn’t expect to do it for more than a year. But we keep discovering new things about the paintings. And I am still here!”
JANET HALL, GUILD CHAPEL VOLUNTEER
“[I enjoy] meeting people whether they be from South America or Leicester, sharing my enthusiasm and knowledge, giving advice on what to see, where to eat, drink etc. in the town, listening to their views on a range of matters."
