Get involved with Tangmere


The Museum is staffed entirely by volunteers who perform a wide range of tasks according to their skills. What unites them all is a belief in the work the Museum is doing to preserve, protect and display its growing collection of important military aircraft and related artefacts.

We recruit volunteers to fill the following positions:

  • Shop Staff
  • Guides and Security
  • Artefact research
  • Aircraft preservation
  • Carpentry
  • General maintenance
  • Electrical maintenance
  • Grounds maintenance


If you think you could help us by giving a little of your time we would like to hear from you. A good first step is to complete the Volunteer Application Form which can be downloaded HERE. Or you can call us on 01243 790090 during normal Museum opening hours.
