Current opportunities:

Exhibition Volunteer

Whether you are 16 and just starting out, looking to gain experience in arts and museums or looking to try something new – you may very well be able to help us. 

About the role: 
We are looking for enthusiastic Exhibition Volunteers with excellent communication skills, who are interested in developing a sound knowledge of the day-to-day running of public gallery and museum spaces and displaying fascinating collections in museum settings. 

As an Exhibition Volunteer you are likely to be the first person many of our visitors will encounter when they come to spend their day with us, so we are looking for volunteers who are positive, have a sense of fun and want to make their day as special as possible. 

Best Art Vinyl: album artwork through the ages is open 5 days per week (excluding Tuesdays and Wednesdays) 10 am – 4 pm. We are looking for volunteers to help us from Saturday 22nd October – Sunday 22nd January. 

About the exhibition:
Best Art Vinyl: album artwork through the ages showcases some of the very best vinyl album artwork from 1949 – 2021. The display is joined by the annual Best Art Vinyl 2022 Award where, from the 8th November, you can vote for your favourite album cover from a shortlist selected by an expert panel. As well as learning all about the artwork, take a trip down memory lane and discover Lincolnshire’s sometimes surprising musical past.
