Jubilee Celebrations: Bring your own Garden Party

Throughout the 20th century, games, food, and music were spread throughout the garden on special occasions for guests to enjoy. In the same vein, bring your own picnic, hear the musical harmonies of the Disley Community Choir or borrow a garden game.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Enjoy a full day out for the Jubilee weekend. Bring your own blanket for an al-fresco feast by Reflection Lake or take away an afternoon tea or woodfire pizza on the terrace. Get away from the buzz moment in the secluded Vicary Gibbs Garden and listen to the bees dance from flower to flower.

Jubilee dates:

Thursday 2nd June - 12pm and 2pm - Disley Community Choir

Friday 3rd June - Bring your own garden party

Saturday 4th June - 12pm and 2pm - Hullabaloo Singers

Sunday 5th June - Bring your own garden party

If you're feeling active, why not borrow a garden game and challenge the children to a game of croquet or bring a kite to fly by the cage?

Read up on the royals from a special collection of regal donations in the pre-loved book shop. If that's not your cup of tea, browse the shelves for a regency romance or discover a rare tome. Every penny spent goes towards helping Lyme.

If you haven’t been for a while, or have never visited before, we can’t wait to show you everything that Lyme has to offer.

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
