Timespan is proud to offer a diverse portfolio of paid internships. These are structured work-based learning opportunities to support people from all backgrounds to work in the arts sector.


Volunteers make a significant contribution to the work of Timespan, and we are committed to creating meaningful and productive roles for volunteers that will enable them to develop skills, knowledge and experience.

We currently have volunteer programmes in the following categories:


We’re looking to expand our lovely herb garden to include a modest kitchen garden of salads and veg. If you’ve got green fingers and keen to learn from hardened gardeners about successfully growing herbs and veg in a difficult northern environment, get in touch.

Archive & Collection

We’re committed to fully digitising our archive and collections and are looking for people who would like to learn cataloguing, archiving and object preservation skills.


Timespan is blessed by our committed and hard-working Friends of Timespan who organise a range of fun and joyous events including ceilidhs, fashion shows, Burns Night suppers and quizzes. If you’ve got an idea for village events and would like to join Friends of Timespan, please get in touch.
