A Woman's Work Exhibition

Tin worker, seamstress, home-maker, mother, cook, teacher...the roles of Women behind the workforce at Aberdulais.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Within the 'Woman's Work' exhibition, discover the women behind the workforce and their crucial role to the rise of the tinworks industry. The exhibition will give you a flavour of the daily demands facing women during the tinworks boom and decline, and try your hand at Victorian life.

The exhibition will run daily at Aberdulais, in our exhibition room.

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
