An audience with Father Christmas

Join Father Christmas as he returns to Trelissick to entertain families with his festive tales in the stables.

  • Booking essential
  • Admission applies

Father Christmas will be telling his festive tale in the stable yard on various dates throughout December and will hand out a small gift at the end of the story.

Father Christmas is very busy during December so pre-booking is essential and please take note that normal admission charges to the property still apply, free to National Trust members.

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...

Parking charge of £5. National Trust members please scan your membership cards at the car park machines for free parking.

Prices are for a combined house and garden ticket. The house is sometimes closed for private events so please check the opening times before you visit.
