Meet Father Christmas: Tuesday to Thursday (sorry, sold out)

Father Christmas is once more stopping in at Tyntesfield, before he heads off for a busy season on his sleigh.

  • Booking essential
  • Admission applies

For those that have been nice, there'll be crafts, treats and a chat with the big man of Christmas himself, in his new workshop up at the Home Farm courtyard.

If your child has any special education needs that you think we ought to know about, or which might affect your visit to Father Christmas, please get in touch with us and we’ll be happy to discuss how we can best facilitate your visit.

Please allow plenty of time to arrive before your time slot, particularly during busy periods.

What is Gift Aid?

Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points.

Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:

  • Gift Aid Admission
  • Standard Admission

If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.

Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.

An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below:

  Gift Aid Standard
Amount paid by visitor £11.00 £10.00
Tax refund from Government* £2.75 £0.00
Total received by the National Trust £13.75 £10.00

 

*Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.
