Drop-in sessions from 10:30-13:00 on 2 and 3 June 2022

Book in for one of our bug hotel making workshops with volunteer Graham. The workshop is a drop-in session and it will take around 15 mins for you to complete your bug hotel. You can arrive any time between 10:30 and 12:45.

Graham will show you how to put together your own bug hotel using a variety of natural products such as bark, bamboo, pine cones and twigs.

All materials are provided including bug hotel structure, natural products, chicken wire and gloves to wear.

If you would like to bring your own gardening gloves you are welcome to do so.

The £6 ticket is for one bug hotel. If you would like to make more than one please book multiple tickets.

Please bring your ticket with you.

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
