Celebrating the life and work of Ted Hughes


Volunteering at the Elmet Trust gives you the opportunity to promote interest in the life and works of Ted Hughes, put your skills to good use, and be part of the local community. We need volunteers for no more than a few hours at a time, and most of our activity is focused around the preparation for, and delivery of, the annual Ted Hughes Festival. The next festival will be held in 2018, the twentieth anniversay of Ted's death, and we are starting our preparations now. 

Aside from our own activities, we also need people who are willing to act as ambassadors for the Trust at events being run by community groups across Calderdale.

We will ensure that you are fully briefed on the work of the Trust and will explain clearly what we'd like you to do.

If you are interested in volunteering, or have any questions, please email us at   and we will do our best to get you into a role as soon as possible.
