On July 14th we will have some marvellous Mummers performing a rendition of St George & The Dragon in the beautiful gardens of Paycocke's House.

  • Booking not needed

Paycocke's itself houses two of the earliest positively identifiable representations of Mummers in the carvings of its cart-way. Performing twice through the day at 11:30 and 14:15, we will be paying tribute to the history of Mummers across Coggeshall with a rendition of St George & The Dragon- enjoy an afternoon in the garden with your family alongside some traditional entertainment!

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
