Ripon Museum Trust is an organisation of dedicated, enthusiastic and skilled individuals who look after three unique heritage buildings, their collections and visitors with a team of over 140 volunteers.

Our paid staff are:

Director (James Etherington) [email protected]

Volunteer Manager part-time (Wendy Hunwick-Brown) [email protected]

Administration Assistant (Xantha Mepham) [email protected]

Learning Manager (Carrie Philip) [email protected]

Learning Assistant (Katy O'Malley) [email protected]

Technical Assistant (Paul Grayson) [email protected] 


The Board of Trustees meet formally 4 times a year but are very hands-on and most are able to volunteer as receptionists, guides, education leaders and gardeners.

All our volunteers are invited to share their ideas, opinions and influence the successful operation of Ripon Museums.
