“Are we still debating this?”

To celebrate our 2018 ‘Women of Wray Castle: Convention and Control’ exhibition, local community groups will be holding presentations and debates revolving around women’s experiences today.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

The patchwork quilt in the final room of this year's exhibition provides a space for visitors to share their thoughts and experiences. Three key topics have emerged: motherhood, women in work and equality. To explore these ideas further, informal discussions will be held at Wray Castle on the last three Sundays of November, and will be led by local community groups. You can join in these reflections on social issues today, or simply watch and listen to the discussions taking place.

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
