Storytelling for Allhallowtide

As the nights draw in and the shadows grow long, join us for an autumn tale or two in the cow shed.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Allhallowtide is a time when the veil between the worlds grows thin: when spirits and sprites, hobgoblins and boggarts, pixies and hinky punks walk amongst us.

Join a story with Sharon Jacksties, a talented storyteller with an impressive knowledge of local legends and folklore. The stories can be enjoyed by everyone, whether you are 4 or 84.

The story telling sessions will be running at 11.30am and 2.30pm on Sat 23, Sun 24, Mon 25 and Sun 31 October.

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...

Free entry for National Trust members.
