Situated within the beauty of the East Northamptonshire countryside, Deene Park is a real hidden gem. Deene has been the home of the Brudenell family since 1514 and was the seat of the Earls of Cardigan, most notably the famous 7th Earl who led the Charge of the Light Brigade in the Crimean War of 1854.

This largely sixteenth century House has an interesting yet complimentary mixture of styles, including a considerable collection of family portraits, possessions, and memorabilia from the Crimean War; however, its most endearing feature is the fact that it is still a much-loved family home.

Deene Park is open to the public each year between April and September, and we are looking to recruit volunteer room guides for the 2021 season, specifi cally on Sunday and bank holiday Monday afternoons, and Wednesdays in September. Our team of wonderful volunteers are vital in bringing Deene Park to life, welcoming our visitors, and imparting their knowledge of the Brudenell family and the history of the House in a fascinating and enjoyable way. Room guides also play a valuable role in safeguarding the interiors & collections.

This role would suit individuals who have an enthusiastic and friendly manner, who have an interest in local history and enjoy meeting new people. Experience is not essential as full training will be provided. As a volunteer the role is unpaid, although travel expenses are reimbursed. In recognition of the support our Volunteer Guides provide they are invited annually, prior to the start of the season to have lunch in the formal Dining Room hosted by Mr and Mrs Brudenell; in addition, we also organise a Guides Day Out to a local place of interest.
