Fancy being an elf for the day? Or are you a champion at building bird feeders? There’s nothing nat trustlike a fun day out, and Events Assistants help us to make them happen at Kinver Edge

By getting involved, you could:
– Have fun and help visitors enjoy themselves, in the Rock Houses and the countryside of the Edge
– Get experience of working on some of the best events around
– Dress up in costume – but it’s not compulsory!
– Help turn a field into a festival and back again in one day
– Join an enthusiastic and varied team and make some new friends

What’s involved?
– Helping to plan events so that they tell the story of our place and bring the history and nature to life
