Getting Involved


Do you want to become the new face of Wirksworth’s Heritage?

Wirksworth Heritage Centre is hunting for one young person (over 8 and under 16) and one adult to present our new virtual heritage tours of Wirksworth – these will be short films of about 15 minutes in length. You don’t need in depth knowledge of the town’s history but need to be enthusiastic and confident to appear on camera. If you would like to volunteer for this role please let us know by 22nd June 2020, or if you would like more information please contact Roger Shelley at or call 07841 019438. Applicants will be invited to a virtual audition on 25th June, and the filming is expected to take place in mid July.


We rely on the support of an amazing group of volunteers who support the organisation in a variety of ways – working on the museum collection, helping with events, and running the heritage centre.

If you’re looking to…

  • meet new people and learn new skills
  • give something back to the town
  • gain confidence or simply just have fun

…then we would love to hear from you.

We’d also like to hear from people who may be interested in joining us as a trustee.


However much you’d like to get involved – in the first instance, please email Jacqueline at:


Wirksworth Heritage Centre has around 50 members who support the organisation. This is a vital way of keeping the Heritage Centre at the heart of the community.  Membership is £15 (single), £25 (household), and runs for 12 months from August.  Benefits include – 

  • Invitations to previews of new exhibitions
  • Free access to the museum galleries
  • An annual social evening
