Big Spinning Day
Lavenham was once famous for spinning wool, seeing Lavenham boom in the late 15th Century through wealth from the wool trade. Join us for a special day of demonstrations.
- Booking not needed
- Free event (admission applies)
A special opportunity to come and see our wonderful volunteers spinning wool using traditional spinning wheels. They will be making yarn from both tradtional and modern fibres including a few surprising fibres. We welcome you to come and have a chat and ask us questions. This art was important to Lavenham and is a key part of its history. Normal admission prices apply.

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:
|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|
