George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion

Could a Cockney Flower girl really be transformed into a Fair Lady? DOT Productions return in their 12th year of touring with their own adaptation of a well-loved classic, George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion.

  • Booking essential
  • Admission applies

Will professor of phonetics Henry Higgins transform Eliza Doolittle enough to convince upper-class society that she is one of them, or will Eliza never forget who she really is?

Pygmalion explores the English class system with all of its petty attitudes and posturing. Full of wit & wisdom Shaw exposes the hollowness at the heart of that society, but it is not just about accents or class. It is about the battle of the sexes, of control!

Brought to the stage by a cast of 5 actors and DOT’s unmistakable entertaining style this is not to be missed.

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...

Free entry to the garden, cafe and second-hand bookshop. 

Entry to the whole house is by guided tour only, Tuesday - Saturday. Tour tickets allocated on arrival. Guided tours run daily but are subject to tour guide availability.
