Volunteers play an invaluable part in the daily operations of Handel House and the Hendrix Flat. The volunteering programme not only provides a vital contribution to the organisation’s work, but also offers volunteers a wide range of benefits and the opportunity to develop new skill sets.
We welcome applications for volunteering roles from individuals wishing to support our activities in the historic residences.
Front of House Volunteers
Handel and Hendrix in London recruits volunteers who are dedicated to enhancing the visitor experience and who wish to support the organisation’s work. Our volunteers take on the roles of room attendants, shop assistants and reception throughout the day for both residences.
It is expected that you will be able to commit to at least one shift per week for at least six months. Volunteers must be aged 18 or over.

What our Visitors Have to Say
A small London townhouse packed with history and ambience. Really cool to talk to well informed staff about either previous famous tenant.
A breathtaking experience! Huge thanks to all those who volunteer to continue to make this possible for future generations to share and enjoy.
This museum is a hidden gem! Loved every minute of my visit… enhanced by the high level of knowledge imparted from the volunteers! Many thanks.
Great way of seeing contrasting history, and guides and all staff really helpful and informative. Thanks very much.
Such a wonderful place and such wonderful staff – they couldn’t be more helpful.
What Our Volunteers Say
This House is a treasure and I feel privileged to be, in a very small way, a custodian of it.
I have learnt so much about the day to day running of a museum. Also we get to be involved in talks, writing articles for newsletters and even the chance to contribute to exhibitions. It is a lovely place to work and you really feel as though you are in the world of Handel.
Not only have I gained a deeper understanding of the eighteenth-century world in which Handel lived, but I have also had the opportunity to contribute my own specialist knowledge through the presentation of Saturday gallery talks and, more recently, to increase my confidence through giving guided tours!
What I enjoyed most about volunteering at Handel House was interacting with visitors from all over the world who have a passion for Handel, Baroque music and Georgian history.
