STAA loves telling wide-ranging audiences about the fascinating history of St Ann's allotments.
Volunteers are trained with all the information they need to be either a lead or support volunteer, delivering a range of tours, talks and event

Our tours are typically 90 minutes long, and tour STAA's projects and some of the avenues of St Ann's allotments with 'stop points' for heritage facts and stories.
We have some regular tour slots (usually wednesday afternoons and Saturdays) but offer more times alongside volunteer availablity - so we can work around you!
Our talks programme is currently paused, but we are preparing to take our talks back into the community in the near future.
You will receive full training, including shadowing an experienced volunteer or member of staff.

Tour guides also often help us in showing visitors around site at other events STAA holds too.
