Reimagining India exhibition

The Garden room, one of the more intriguing rooms at Basildon Park, is being reinterpreted and re-presented this autumn with an exhibition titled Reimagining India.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Inspired by Lady Iliffe's incomplete decorative scheme she had for this room, the exhibition in the Garden Room will focus on the connections Basildon Park has had with India over the past 240 years. Working with partners from our local community to co-curate the exhibition, we'll focus on the cultural achievements and personal stories that have shaped British-Indian links from Sykes's time through until today.

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 or
  • Standard admission

If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you the Gift Aid Admission prices. But it's entirely up to you which ticket you choose. If you want the Standard Admission instead, just let us know when you come to pay.

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: Payment of the additional percentage donation is entirely voluntary, so if you prefer to pay the standard admission please advise our reception staff at the till point.

  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 donations must be supported by a valid Gift Aid declaration and a Gift Aid declaration can only cover donations made by an individual for him/herself or for him/herself and members of his/her family.

Please note...

Entry for National Trust members: free.
