February Half Term Wassailing

Join us this February half term in waking up our trees for 2020 - it works every year!

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Traditionally celebrated on Twelfth Night, wassailing is the ancient custom of visiting orchards, reciting incantations and singing to the trees to promote a good harvest for the year

The louder, the better!

Start or finish your wassail by toasting marshmallows by our woodland campfire. Little ones can complete one of the 50 things to do before 11 ¾ and it's good fun for adults too. Toasting marshmallows over the campfire is £1.50 per bag.

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
