Getting Involved


Business consultancy opportunity

Do you have a strong business background, and are either already working to advise new customer-facing enterprises or are looking to develop this line of work?  Wirksworth Heritage Centre is seeking a business consultant who can work closely with us to produce practical ideas to boost our business and income generation.  We have issued a tender for this work, for completion by 23 October.  Please see these documents for further details – Consultancy Brief (002)amend (1)   supportbusinessletter


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:
