For the beer, culture, and heritage enthusiasts! This is a low-commitment volunteering opportunity for anyone interested in shining a light on Ouseburn's fantastic brewery scene.

Volunteer as a Ouseburn Brewery Tour Guide at Ouseburn Trust

About the role

Volunteers undergo training and mentoring and be given full support by the existing Volunteer Guides and Trust staff.  

You’ll be responsible for meeting and welcoming visitors and leading the group of visitors to two breweries and a pub, whilst providing heritage and culture stories in between stops using a recommended script and route. 

As a brewery guide, you’ll follow a set route and monitor the time to ensure you make it to every stop. You’ll also be responsible for monitoring and observing the health and safety requirements of the tour, particularly in areas with busy traffic. 

To finish the event off, you can join the group for a beer at the final stop!
