Exhibition Engagement & Evaluation Volunteer
On 14th November 2022, we will open an exciting new exhibition at Pontefract Museum – Women in Rugby League: Life with the Lionesses. This motivational touring exhibition showcases the women pioneers of international rugby league. Visitors to the exhibition will discover a previously hidden history with a timeline spanning 100 years of women’s sporting achievements. Many of the trail-blazing women featured in the exhibition come from or have played in the Wakefield district, including the inspirational coach, Jackie Sheldon. Her team tracksuit, jersey, and blazer will be on display in the exhibition alongside other previously unseen objects from the women’s rugby league archive, kindly lent by Heritage Quay, University of Huddersfield.
We are looking for Exhibition Engagement & Evaluation Volunteers to support the project. You will welcome visitors to the exhibition space, provide information about the objects on display, help our Visitor Experience Assistants to monitor the security of the loaned objects, and gather visitor feedback about the exhibition. You will help us to ensure that every visitor to the exhibition feels welcome, learns something new, and has an enjoyable visit
