Subject: East Neuk Unearthed - A call for volunteers

This is a call for volunteers to help with the museum’s upcoming exhibition East Neuk Unearthed: treasures of Fife’s hidden past. As you will see, the exhibition is a really exciting opportunity to increase the scale and ambition of our temporary exhibitions and events programmes and will hopefully allow us to gather some very important data which will help us to grow as an institution 


Good afternoon, 

Between 6 May and 30 July the museum will be running an exciting exhibition entitled East Neuk Unearthed: treasures of Fife’s hidden past, which will focus on the history and archaeology of Anstruther and the East Neuk. There are lots of things to be excited about: the National Museum of Scotland is lending us some fascinating artefacts for the displays and we are commissioning some bespoke gallery interactives. In addition, we are also going to be running an exciting events programme. 

There are lots of opportunities for everyone to get involved in this exciting project. We are looking for people to act as gallery invigilators, a role which will involve guiding visitors around the exhibits, answering their questions, and occasionally conducting surveys with members of the public. The latter task will allow us to gather crucial data about who our visitors are and what they want from the museum.

In addition, we are looking for volunteers to help us with the events programme. In particular, we are seeking guides to deliver special historic walking tours of Anstruther to members of the public throughout June and July.

Finally, we are producing a wide variety of marketing materials so that we can make a big splash with the exhibition. It would be great, to have some help disseminating these items all over Fife. 

If any of these roles sound interesting to you then please get in touch in order to register your interest. We will then get back to you with further details at a later date.

Many thanks and best wishes,

Charlie Trzeciak
