Events Volunteers

Volunteering at Events

Our annual programme of events is one of the most publicly visible and rewarding aspects of our work at Earth Trust. Our family festivals, drop in events, walks and courses are becoming ever more popular. Over four Lambing Days in spring we can attract 6000-7000 visitors, and volunteers play a vital and positive role in successfully managing these visitor's experiences.

Volunteers help us to:Making Rush Lights

  • Meet and greet visitors
  • Navigate visitors around the car park and site
  • Run craft activities
  • Serve refreshments in the Poem Tree Cafe
  • Help children build dens
  • Take photographs
  • Help look after other volunteers

Festive Christmas Volunteering


We have four major 'festivals' during the year, one per season starting with Lambing Weekends in the spring. These large-scale events require us to call on as many volunteer helpers as possible! 

This year the Lambing Weekends are 25th-26th March and 1st-2nd April, find out more about volunteering at Lambing.
