Volunteering at Harlech Castle

Harlech Castle

Harlech Castle 

Exciting volunteering opportunities are available at Harlech Castle, part of the Edward 1 World Heritage site.  We currently have vacancies for volunteer Medieval Games Players/Tutors.

Harlech’s battlements spring out of a near-vertical cliff-face.  It’s ‘walls within walls’ being put together in super-fast time between 1283 and 1295, by an army of nearly a thousand skilled craftsmen and labourers, for a mere £8,190. 'Men of Harlech.' The nation’s unofficial anthem, is said to describe the siege which took place during the War of the Roses, when a handful of men held out against a besieging army of thousands.  But times change and todays handful of individuals, now welcome the thousands of visitors, the new ‘floating’ bridge making access to the castle truly available for all.

If you fancy yourself as a medieval games master, playing them, showing others how to, and helping to bring the game offer to life, here’s your chance to help our custodians enhance our visitor experience. To apply, please complete and return the online application form to: HarlechCastle@gov.wales and we will get back to you.
