a place with a future

Join our team of hosts 

SUMMER SEASON 2019

Can you spare a few hours during the summer months. Looking for a new interest and connection to the people of Newtown and elsewhere? We are very keen to find new people to help us.

Why not join our friendly team of hosts who help to keep the Museum open to the public. Lots of our visitors comment on the "very friendly and informative members of staff" but we would welcome more on the team.

We couldn't open our doors to the public without all the help of our volunteers. There are other ways behind the scenes that you can help if you do not want to be a host during opening hours. 

Fancy giving it a try?  Training will be given. Sign up now.  We can arrange a visit to the Museum for you so we can tell you about the ways you can share in telling our story. 

Contact Peter at:  volunteer.coordinator@newtowntextilemuseum.co.uk   or for more general information email: admin@newtowntextilemuseum.co.uk

Do you have a craft you can demonstrate?

Why not share your craft with our visitors. It is a great opportunity to show your work as well as encouraging new people.

Come along and demonstrate on a Saturday in the summer.

Contact: curator@newtowntextilemuseum.co.uk for more information.

 Good reasons for joinING

 NTM Friends

We have established a group called NTM Friends and it would be great if you could sign up and become a supporter.

A modest annual or regular donation, of at least £20  from our members will help to sustain the Museum into the future secure in the knowledge that we have committed funds we can use to develop and keep the Textile Museum open.

As a NTM Friend you will receive our standard newsletter, plus special mailings of interest. We are also looking at ways of offering our Friends special activities and benefits one of which will be a discount to our evening talks or events currently being planned for the summer of 2019

All donations are handled through the MCRA (Montgomeryshire Community Regeneration Association) - the registered charity for the Newtown Textile Museum. (Charity number: 1181252). All money comes direct to the Museum.

Please Gift Aid your donation if you are eligible.
