Toys' Tea Party

Families with children of all ages are welcome to come along with their toys for a Toys' Tea Party and a welcome from black doll entrepreneur Saffron Jackson-Kerr

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Come along with toys for a Toys' Tea Party and a welcome from black doll entrepreneur Saffron Jackson-Kerr, who launched her Jamaican Patois (‘patwa’) speaking doll line called Zuree, meaning beautiful in Swahili, in 2016, with dolls available in a range of skin tones and hair textures. There’ll also be storytelling by Madge Spencer and Dorothy McLoughlin (Aunty Mac), craft-making and the chance to devise a communal poem around themes like ‘being me’ and ‘belonging’.

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.
