The Rope of Hope
Wentworth Castle Gardens welcomes the Rope of Hope, an art installation by Syrian-Palestinian artist Maryam Samaam.
- Booking not needed
- Free event (admission applies)
On 30 October, Wentworth Castle Gardens hosted Little Amal. Little Amal is a 3.5 metre-tall puppet of a young refugee girl who embarked upon The Walk, a voyage from Turkey to England to represent all displaced children. The Walk was produced by Stephen Daldry, David Lan, Tracey Seaward and Naomi Webb for Good Chance Theatre, in association with the Handspring Puppet Company, with artistic director Amir Nizar Zuabi.
Following Amal’s visit, we are hosting the Rope of Hope, an art installation by Syrian-Palestinian artist Maryam Samaam. The rope is 800 metres long to represent the 8000 kilometres Amal has travelled on her remarkable journey, woven with memories of the people and places she has visited.
The rope is a travelling exhibition which will trace Amal’s way back to her homeland and to her mother. It will be on display at Wentworth Castle Gardens for 3 weeks.
Little Amal's visit and the Rope of Hope is a chance to display the message of 'Everyone Welcome’ that we stand for along with our partners Northern College and Barnsley Museums.

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:
|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|

Free entry for National Trust members.
We now accept the Max Card, giving 25% off for foster families and families of children with additional needs.
We accept the Essential Companion card, which makes it simple to bring one or two carers or companions with you, free of charge. Just show the card when you arrive, and your carer(s) or companion(s) won’t need to pay an entry fee.
It’s in your name so you can bring whomever you like, but even if you don’t have an Essential Companion card, you can still bring carers or companions free – the card just makes it quicker and simpler for you.
If you’re not a National Trust member, you will still need to pay for your own entry.
- The Rope of Hope is displayed at Stainborough Castle which is on top of a hill. Wentworth Castle Gardens has two motorised scooters which can be reserved in advance of your visit, please note that the ground may be wet/muddy due to weather conditions.
