Volunteer ‘dungeon masters’ are needed to help with a grisly new exhibition at Middlesbrough’s Dorman Museum.

Instruments of Medieval Torture runs from Saturday, June 15 to Tuesday, December 31.

The exhibition explores the horrors inflicted in the name of justice, and features replicas of more than 50 torture methods based on objects amassed by private collectors and historians across Europe.

These include notorious devices such as the interrogation seat, the witches chair, the rack and the notorious iron maiden.

The exhibition opens Tuesday to Sunday, 10am to 4pm, and the Dorman is keen to hear from volunteers able to help keep it up and running.

The role involves collecting tickets, assisting in the gallery and interacting with the public, as well as front of house duties.

Shifts will be for a few hours at a time on a rotational basis alongside the Dorman’s existing staff.

Help is currently needed throughout the week, but especially at weekends and holiday times.

Lunch vouchers will be provided for those volunteering for the whole day.
