Children's Crafts - The first signs of Spring

With Spring on the horizon, February half term's crafts explore Ickworth coming to life again.

  • Booking not needed
  • Admission applies

The first signs of the warmer season are in the air with the blooming of our snowdrops.

As well as our winter flower crowns, children can make their own Outdoor Adventure Scrapbooks where they can write about the 50 things activities that they’ve undertaken. We will also have decorations that demonstrate the different flowers and colours that you can see during winter, and umbrella mobiles, as rain is often unavoidable in February!

Last entry to the indoor activities 3.30pm

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

 

*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.
