Paint the Gardens

From the youngest toddlers to the most mature seniors, and those with little painting experience to amateur and professional artists - come and paint the gardens at Belton!

  • Booking advisable
  • Free event (admission applies)

Collect your art materials from the estate yard or garden entrance, from 10am-4pm, and head out into the gardens to draw or paint your favourite spots. Take home personal memories of the wonderful gardens at Belton in all seasons!

All materials and paper are free, aside from the best quality paper which will cost 50p per sheet. There is a voluntary donation to help replace items.

This event will be running on the second and fourth Saturdays of each month, starting on the 13 and 27 August.

The event is not pre-bookable, but we operate a booking system for admission to the entire Belton estate, and strongly advise checking availability before visiting at peak holiday times. Visit our website for more information.

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
