A HISTORIC hall is staging open days for prospective volunteers.

East Riddlesden Hall is holding the events in the Airedale Barn on February 25 and 27.

There will be two sessions each day, at 11am and 1.30pm, lasting about an hour.

Anyone interested in serving as a house experience volunteer, whose role includes welcoming visitors and outlining some of the 17th-century National Trust property's history, is invited to attend.

Amy Gregory, collections and house officer at East Riddlesden Hall, says: "The house volunteers help to bring the history of the hall to life for our visitors."

Emily Smith, volunteering and community officer, says volunteers from all backgrounds are welcome. No experience is required.

She adds: "The role would suit people who are interested in local history and it could help anyone seeking a career in the heritage sector. The skills and experience gained can enhance your CV for future employers."
