Fired Earth, Sacred Wilderness exhibition

Inspired by the natural world, artists Karen Pearson and Reiko Evans will show their work at Leith Hill Place.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

The exhibition will reflect on Leith Hill as an area of outstanding natural beauty and the threats the landscape has faced and is currently facing. There will be an organic nature to some of the work (both in ceramics and paintings) and an

underlying celebration of the preservation of the local natural environment.

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...

There is a suggested donation of £3.50 in the Rhododendron Wood car park for non National Trust members.
