You can make all the difference to a visitor’s experience by working in one of a number of roles connected with the Visitor Attraction. This is a fun, sociable form of volunteering. You need to be cheerful, calm and helpful to enable the visitors to get the best experience from their visit to the Royal Gunpowder Mills.


Be one of a team of uniformed volunteers assisting visitors to get the most out of the Royal Gunpowder Mills. You could be welcoming visitors onto site, staffing exhibitions,  assisting with events. Exhibitions that you may opt to help and improve include the Armoury and the Rocket Vault using your specialist knowledge of the topic or interest to learn. 

Driving & Guiding Tours

Pass on the wonders of the history, buildings and nature of the site to the visitors by being part of tour crews. If you can communicate well, we can give your the information to become a RGM tour guide or if you have a full UK driving licence we will train you to drive the tractor or military truck around the tour routes.

Family Activity Support

Help create a fun and educational atmosphere at our family activity workshops. Support the staff in ensuring the smooth running of arty and craft activities, workshops, science demonstrations and assisting the team with preparation and clearing.
