Shugborough Lantern Workshop and Parade

Create your own special lantern for our magical lantern parade that will show off Christmastime at Shugborough like never before.

  • Booking essential
  • Admission applies

Join us for a creative experience where you will be provided with your own materials to craft your very own paper pyramid lantern. Then show off your skills by returning to our magical lantern parade, where you and your lantern will journey across the estate and be immersed in light and sound. You'll learn about what makes Shugborough special, whilst enjoying a festive evening with friends and family.

You'll be able to sign up to a parade on either 15, 16 or 17 Dec at the end of your workshop.

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...

Admission charges apply to non-members and are paid at Visitor Reception. When you buy your admission ticket to Shugborough you're directly helping to keep the estate a special place for ever, for everyone.

Parking is free of charge.

We are currently offering a discounted admission price whilst we carry out essential works across the estate, however all areas are open as per our opening times.
