Chippendale: the Man and the Brand

Visit this brand new exhibition to discover how Thomas Chippendale made his name: from the publication of his pattern book of furniture designs to masterminding entire rooms in the latest 18th century fashions for Rowland Winn at Nostell.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Nostell's unique archive of letters and invoices will be on display, revealing the man behind the Chippendale brand, the inner workings of his firm and the often challenging relationship between client and supplier.

You'll see an iconic Chippendale chair alongside a simple kitchen chopping block and the tools that both sculpted works of art and fixed squeaky doors, showcasing the full range of objects and services that this top end designer provided for his prestigious and demanding client.

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...

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