Frog Sculptures

Christmas is coming to Nymans….and it’s frog shaped!

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Inspired by Quentin Blake’s ‘The Story of the Dancing Frog’, a sculpture trail of froggy dancers comes to the garden this Christmas. Can you tell your Frogstrot from your Amphibian Smooth? Your Riverdance from your Lindy-hop? A cha-cha-chance to meet some froggy dancers created especially for Nymans in conjunction with Wild in Art, our partners in last year’s Snowdog art trail.

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...

Please note child ticket is aged under 17. Under 5's go free.

Last admission is 30 minutes before closing.
