The Orange Tree embroidery and textile conservation displays

Learn about how the National Trust looks after textiles and find out more about The Orange Tree embroidery by May Morris.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Bateman’s is celebrating the skill of embroidery, as part of the National Trust’s 125 Treasures programme and inspired by The Orange Tree embroidery by May Morris.

This embroidered hanging in soft coloured silks on linen is displayed in the Parlour at Bateman’s and depicts a simple orange tree, grown as a standard, with bushy foliage, golden oranges and roses climbing up its slender trunk.

After viewing The Orange Tree embroidery, visitors will be able to see a short introductory film revealing more about it in the Kitchen. Displays explaining how the National Trust looks after textiles will enable visitors to see and read about how we conserve embroideries for the future.

In the Kitchen at Bateman's, 10 October - 3 January.

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
