'I Dare' Exhibition
Celebrating the 100th anniversary of women securing the vote, 'I Dare' tells the story of how, in 1931, the 'straightforward and modest' Ida Copeland defeated fascist Oswald Mosley to become MP for Stoke-on-Trent.
- Booking not needed
- Free event (admission applies)
Born into privilege but beset by tragedy, Ida Copeland made it her business to do her bit and have her say. Ida, shrewd, smart and hardworking, knew exactly how to run a political campaign. The blustering Oswald Mosley certainly met his match in her. Trelissick has commissioned graphic artist, Keith Sparrow, to tell the dynamic story of Ida's political campaign and for the time, we reveal powerful and poignant archive photos from that time.

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 or
- Standard admission
If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you the Gift Aid Admission prices. But it's entirely up to you which ticket you choose. If you want the Standard Admission instead, just let us know when you come to pay.
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: Payment of the additional percentage donation is entirely voluntary, so if you prefer to pay the standard admission please advise our reception staff at the till point.
|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 donations must be supported by a valid Gift Aid declaration and a Gift Aid declaration can only cover donations made by an individual for him/herself or for him/herself and members of his/her family.
Parking charge of £5 for cars, National Trust members free with a car sticker and valid membership card.
