Past, Present, Future

Inspired by both historic and contemporary reminiscences and stories, this exhibition brings together a selection of previously unseen artefacts from other collections around the country that all have a connection to the castle.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

The story of Lindisfarne’s past, present and future is brought to life using a selection of media, told from the perspective of its residents and visitors over the centuries and includes locals’ first-hand memories. A trail for children will run in parallel through each of the rooms, allowing them to explore and discover for themselves.

Running from 13 February - 24 March 2019.

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...

Gift Aid Includes a voluntary donation of at least 10% which will be put towards the restoration and upkeep of this property.  If you are a UK taxpayer, please complete a Gift Aid declaration which will allow the National Trust to claim an extra 25% from the Government on your total payment.  You will be asked to pay the Gift Aid Admission unless you request to pay the Standard Admission.
