Get Involved

There are many different ways to be involved with Lowewood Museum…

Become a Trustee for our new ‘Culture without Borders Development Trust’
Created to support Lowewood and Epping Forest District Museums and the Spotlight Theatre, Hoddesdon.
If you live in the Borough of Broxbourne or in Epping Forest Dsitrcit, or have a passion for culture, history and learning and believe that you have the relevant skills and expertise to offer this exciting new development trust, we would love to hear from you. 
We are establishing a Charitable Trust  to assist us with our ambitious development plans and  further promote the knowledge and appreciation of our shared history and culture, not only on a local, but on a regional and national level. The trust will play a key role in developing funding strategies, including individual giving and legacies, to assist with the future development and help attract or create new exhibitions and events, building on the strong body or work already undertaken.
Trustees skills:  
We welcome applications for Trustee positions, from those who are not only committed to ensuring that the future of the museums and theatre are secure and that they go from strength to strength, but from those who have specialist skills in the following areas:  Finance, Fundraising, Philanthropy, Marketing, Communications, PR, Arts, Heritage, Leisure and Culture, Retail, hospitality and tourism and Charity and Social Enterprise.
There will be an open evening for all those interested in becoming a Trustee on Tuesday 13 June 2017 at the Epping Forest District Museum, 4-7 pm.
This will be an invaluable opportunity to learn more about the new charity and your potential role as a Trustee, it will, also, be a chance to see the new exhibition space and displays in Epping Forest. For an informal discussion or for an information pack, please contact:
