Volunteer with us

Our Hut is looking for a small team of volunteers to work on an exciting new heritage and education project at Crystal Palace Park.

Sublime Structures at Crystal Palace Park

Our Sublime Structures at Crystal Palace Park project aims to increase understanding of Crystal Palace Park’s heritage and encourage more schools and families to visit this historical park.

The fun and engaging project will consist of workshops in schools, family events and result in educational resources and a family learning pack. The focus will be on the structures and buildings within Crystal Palace Park, buildings construction, engineering and usage.

We are currently recruiting for research volunteers.
