Mystery Of The Yuletide Feast

Montacute House sleeps as winter falls. The family have departed for the yuletide season, and the house has been put to bed. However, all is not as it should be…

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

In the house (open every day 11am to 3pm with last entry at 2.30pm), the remains of a decedent yuletide party have been discovered. Greenery and candles adorn the rooms and the atmosphere is charged.

Enjoy the story, the mystery and the house being seen from a totally different perspective this winter. Is it possible to glean some clues amongst the lavish display of merrymaking that Montacute House has played host to?

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...

Free entry for National Trust members.
