Afternoon Tea Talk - Fashioning the Modern Woman:

Delve into the 1930s female wardrobe and discover what the fashionable, modern woman was wearing. Fashioning the Modern Woman: changing times and dress in the 1930s

  • Booking not needed
  • Admission applies

Join house guide Jane to hear how and why styles of dress changed in the 1930s. Who was the fashionable woman and what did she look like? With a range of clothing items and accessories for you to see, Jane will illustrate how ‘modern’ ideas and technologies were shaping female fashion between the wars.

The talk will be followed by a traditional cream tea in Iris’, Upton’s old kitchen.

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
