Event Details

At a time when all museums are feeling the pressure to do more, this day will explore the potential of how to empower volunteers to take on and develop new projects. We will also discuss what happens when things go wrong and how to handle resistance.

The day will include speakers from:

  • Museum of Cambridge

  • British School Museums

  • National Trust 

As part of this event, we will have a group discussion where delegates can share challenges that they have encountered to get advice from each other.

There will also be the opportunity to have a guided tour of Royston Caves. 

Refreshments will be provided on arrival but please bring your own lunch.
