Christmastide : A Georgian Christmas

Celebrate Christmas, Georgian style!

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

The Georgians didn't mess around when it came to a party, and Christmas was no different! It was an adults-only affair with music, drinks and games. Visit over the two weekends to meet the well dressed family and their staff, see the lavish decorations and listen to music in the main hall and get a taste of how Christmas should be done.

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
