Outdoor theatre: The Jungle Book presented by The Herald Players

Join Mowgli and his friends, Baloo and Bagheera, for a fast-paced adventure in the jungle.

  • Booking essential
  • Admission applies

Can you swing from the trees like an orangutan? Or roar like the great tiger, Shere Khan? Join Mowgli and his friends, Baloo the bear and Bagheera the panther, for a whirlwind adventure among the trees.

The Herald Players invite you to be transported away from the glade at Winkworth Arboretum and into the depths of the jungle, as you join them for a lively new adaptation of Rudyard Kipling's children's classic, The Jungle Book.

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...

£1 tea-room voucher for those arriving by public transport (please present valid ticket at kiosk).
