What’s on at Abney Park

EVENTS VOLUNTEERING
Pandemonium Performance is presenting a promenade performance of Lewis Carroll’s Alice In Wonderland. We are looking for volunteers for the evenings of 13-31 July to help steward the audience and make sure none wander off or get lost! If you’re interested in helping please email info@abneypark.org for details of when we need help and what we’d need you to do.

We rely on our volunteers to help us put on events like this, so if you like seeing drama, music, educational and other events at Abney please do think about donating a little of your time. Thank you!
