Crafty Collections Thursday

Come inside and unleash your inner artist, creating a range of items to take home and proudly display, all inspired by Nostell and its collections.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Get into the Christmas spirit early and have a go at making paper craft clock decorations to help Nostell get ready for festive season (it's a big house to fill!). The theme this year is A Clock Work Christmas, so take a look at the 300-year-old John Harrison clock to get your creative juices flowing. You'll also be able to craft your own fabric clock badge to take home. Don't forget to come back at Christmas to see your artwork on display!

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...

Access to Parkland is free. There is a £4 car parking charge (free for National Trust members).
