Hands On or Hands Off? If Walls Could Talk.

This Workhouse exhibition is linked with the National Trust programme and is an exciting opportunity to see conservation in action focusing on how and why we conserve our wallpaper.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

There are numerous wallpaper samples both in the main Workhouse building and in the newly conserved Firbeck Infirmary. We have worked with local artist, Sarah Holden, and Brownies and Guides to produce wallpaper samples which will be hung together as part of an exhibition. The children's work will help to show the extent of the damage caused when people and items touch this wallpaper.

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
