Christmas Elizabethan dancing and masked fairy-tale

Dust off your dancing shoes and step into Christmas with Renaissance Historical Dance Society. 

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Watch some traditional Elizabethan dancing in the Great Hall as you are transported back in time to when Buckland Abbey would have been bought to life with laughter and dancing at Christmas time.

With a festive masked fairy-tale to enjoy, there is something for everyone to enjoy! 

Come and meet the dancers on Sunday 12th December 2022. Booking is not needed for this event, but to make sure we keep everyone safe, we might need to limit numbers into the Great Hall.

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
