A special opportunity is now available for one or two enthusiastic individuals with demonstrable interests relevant to historic wooden stringed or keyboard instruments to volunteer under the direction of the Musical Instruments Department at the Horniman Museum. Please see the role description and full details on the Horniman website.

These opportunities relate to the two stringed keyboard instruments (1668 Guarracino virginals and 1777 Adam Beyer square piano) that the Horniman acquired with the support of the Heritage Lottery Fund when the Finchcocks Collection was auctioned in 2016.
