Her Say: extraordinary women of Sutton Hoo

2018 marks 100 years since some women were granted a parliamentary vote. To mark the centenary we are celebrating the women who significantly contributed to the history of Sutton Hoo. Discover about the legacy left by an Anglo-Saxon Queen...

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

In the Exhibition Hall Treasury you will find three hand-crafted wall hangings made by Sutton Hoo's closest primary school Melton. The hangings depict the role the Queen may have had in orchestrating the burial in Mound One and what story she was perhaps telling through the objects she buried with her husband.

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
