Volunteering at Rug Chapel

Rug Chapel

Rug Chapel

Exciting volunteering opportunities are available at the religiously glorious in glorious technicolour, Rug Chapel.  We currently have vacancies for volunteer tour guides.

Step inside 17th-century Rug Chapel and be wowed by its decorative flourishes. The chapel’s plain exterior gives little hint of the riches within. Its founder, the arch-Royalist Colonel William Salesbury, created a private chapel complete with high church pretensions and a zany style to counter puritanical notions of the time.  A real show off in wood, you’ll find wood carvings or rose motifs on the altar rails, family pews, painted gallery and bench ends. It certainly grabbed the attention of Sir Edwin Lutyens, but can you grab and hold the attention of our visitors, so they go home informed about and inspired by  Rug Chapel, as he was, as can be seen by his Viceroy’s House in New Delhi, India?

If you have an interest in flamboyant religious architecture and fancy yourself as a tour guide, here’s your chance to help our custodians enhance our visitor experience. To apply, please complete and return the online application form to: RugChapel@gov.wales and we will get back to you.
