Choose The Part You Play

We want you to help take Jarrow Hall forward with an enhanced visitor experience and living history every day. Discover your passion, learn new skills and enjoy yourself as a History Maker or a Place Changer.

As a History Maker you'll bring the world of Bede and medieval Northumbria to life in our reconstruction Anglo-Saxon settlement. Launching in 2018, you'll receive training and support to develop your own Anglo-Saxon character and be part of the very first team bringing our Everyday Living History project to life.

As a Place Changer you can find the role to suit you on our incredibly varied 11-acre site. Whether it's becoming a Tour Guide, welcoming visitors at our reception, helping out on the farm or Herb Garden, getting involved with the museum and our collection or helping behind the scenes, we'll work with you to get you exactly where you want to be.

To register your interest, simply email us at and let us know if you'd like to be a Place Changer or a History Maker*, and we'll be in touch to let you know how to apply and choose the part you play.
