East Grinstead Spinners at Standen, first Friday of every month

Join the East Grinstead Spinners at Standen on the first Friday of every month.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

The East Grinstead Spinners are a small, enthusiastic group who enjoy sharing ideas, learning new skills, and spinning, weaving or dyeing among friends. Join us at Standen on the first Friday of every month.

No matter how experienced or inexperienced a spinner you are, we have experts in many fibre crafts who are happy to offer help and guidance if you wish.

The demonstrations aim to keep the traditional crafts of spinning, dyeing and handweaving alive. They are a great way to meet new people and learn new skills whilst sharing fibre related interests.

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
