Volunteer Roles at Tatton


At Tatton we currently have over 130 volunteers who are integral to the operation of the property and assist us in making sure that our award winning attractions, environment and events continue to welcome people from all over the country.

Our volunteers help us make sure that each and every visitor enjoys their experience of a day out at Tatton and this can only be made possible by their time. We aspire to the highest standards of visitor service and customer care on the basis that we can always improve. Each volunteer's contribution to that process is as important as everyone else’s, no matter what role 

We aim to:

  • Provide an enjoyable experience and excellent service
  • Show leadership in rural, heritage, conservation and tourism fields and make an active contribution to the local community
  • Reflect the values and standards of the Council and key partners, including the National Trust

Volunteer roles in the Mansion

The Tatton Park Living History Society are a friendly group of volunteers who create a Victorian atmosphere within the Mansion at Tatton Park. Meeting on two Sundays a month, the group create their own costumes, portraying both servants and gentry, to bring the mid 1890s to life. If you are interested in joining, or would like to find out more, please contact Karan Knowles on 01625 374446 or email tatton@cheshireeast.gov.uk
