Volunteer recruitment is now open for Open House 2018.
Open House in an annual celebration of architecture which gives entry to “London’s best buildings”. They rely on volunteers to deliver this weekend festival. Read on for full details…
Open House is currently recruiting for volunteers to help at this year’s festival which takes place on Saturday 22nd September 2018 and Sunday 23rd September 2018.
Open House is London’s largest festival of architecture and design where over 800 buildings across London open their doors to the public for free. 6,000 people volunteer every year over the weekend event. You can read all about the festival on the Open House website.
- What is involved?
As a volunteer you will be helping building owners/representatives to open their buildings to the public. In a lot of cases, the buildings would not be able to open without volunteer support.
You only have to commit one morning or afternoon on one day during the event, and you will be able to choose a slot from a list of buildings which have requested support.
- Why should I volunteer?
97% of our volunteers would recommend the experience to a friend.
Helping to make Open House happen is a rewarding experience. It offers new experiences and skills, as well as providing a great opportunity to learn more about architecture and the built environment. As a thank you for volunteering, you will also receive:
– a volunteer priority badge which allows you to jump the queues at most buildings over the weekend
– a complimentary copy of the Open House guide (normally £6.99)
– invitation to the closing party held at one of our participating buildings on the Sunday evening
