Storytime with Father Christmas

The big man and his elves are coming back to holiday at Beningbrough before their big day and there's something new for 2018.

  • Booking essential
  • Admission applies

Book your place to join Father Christmas in a small group in the library. In the 30 minutes he will share a unique tale, just for his Beningbrough guests and then everybody will have the chance to go up and meet him. This is a good time to give him your list and have a picture taken. If you've been good there might even be an early gift for you!

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.

Please note...

Main season runs from 3 March - 4 November 2018
