Storytelling at Ickworth

Join us for a Percy the Park keeper story in our second-hand book shop every Saturday in January.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

After you've completed your Percy the Park Keeper trail outside, why not come indoors and curl up with a good book? Our volunteer storyteller will be in the second-hand book shop from 11am until approx. 1.30pm reading stories.

Each storytelling session may last between 15 - 30 minutes.

We ask parents please stay with children, and numbers are limited so if the room looks busy why not come back later. There are no set times, our volunteer storytellers will start reading when they have a small group of children waiting.

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
