Volunteering for the Open House London Weekend
The Open House London annual event takes place in September. Each year we recruit and place between 600-700 volunteer stewards and guides at participating buildings - in particular we need volunteers who are able to help out at lesser-known outer-borough buildings and events. In 2015, over 800 volunteers assisted over the weekend!

Want to find out how to get a building or event involved in Open House?
The majority of the programme is compiled with our own research, and sometimes suggestions for inclusion are made to us which we are then able to consider on their individual merits. The criteria for inclusion in the Open House event are architectural merit, and buildings/areas of buildings that are not usually accessible to the general public.
