Battle of Britain Lace Panel: Then and Now

In this RAF centenary year Carol Quarini has created a contemporary textile response to Gawthorpe Textiles Collection's original Battle of Britain machine-lace panel.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Made in 1946 the panel commemorates the famous air battle that was a pivotal moment in World War II, and in which Flying Officer Richard, 2nd Lord Shuttleworth was killed in action. Carol's exhibition includes an installation of stylized parachute shapes, one for each airman who died in the Battle.

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
