History Alive Volunteer Team

History Alive: A Journey Through Time wouldn’t happen without the wonderful Volunteers who work year round to put the event together.

From putting up banners to creating the site layout, and organising stalls and displays, our Volunteer Team put in many hours of their time to make sure History Alive is as good as it can be.

Each member of the Volunteer Team come from different professional backgrounds and make History Alive happen outside of their 9-5 jobs, often taking on new areas they haven’t had experience in because they are passionate about sharing history and re-enactment with a wider audience.
