THE Black Country Living Museum is looking for passionate volunteers with some spare time to don costumes and help bring history to life!

Volunteers will be trained to deliver interactive demonstrations and will allow the museum to breathe life into previously unmanned buildings.

Roles are varied, and volunteers might expect to find themselves cooking up a storm in a 1930s kitchen, helping fire a steam engine or restoring a transport gem.

Dianne Rivers, Volunteer Co-ordinator for the Museum, said: "We're excited to have opened up this opportunity to the public – it means we have the chance to really bring all of the museum's buildings to life.

"It's also a chance for people from all backgrounds to learn some new skills and meet some new people."

A volunteers' open day is taking place this Saturday (August 30) from 10.30am – 2pm, which will provide those interested with all the information they'll need to get started.
