Our Community of Volunteers

Lauren Hall, Visitor Services Assistant

My name is Lauren and, as the Visitor Services Assistant at Watts Gallery – Artists' Village, part of my role is to look after our community of volunteers.

When I started this role 9 months ago, I was immediately struck by both the knowledge and enthusiasm that each of our volunteers has. I have learnt so much from them, not only about G F and Mary Watts, but also about Victorian art more widely (as this is not my area of expertise). I constantly find myself impressed by the welcome our volunteers deliver to each visitor and the willingness to share their passion with those who have never visited us before.

I consider myself lucky to work with such a dynamic, interesting group of volunteers consisting of people from various walks of life. If you're looking to be involved in a group that has learning, sharing and genuine passion at their core, then volunteering at Watts Gallery - Artists' Village is for you!
