Exhibition celebrating The National Portrait Gallery ‘Faces of Change Votes for Women’

In 2018 The Workhouse took part in a project with The National Portrait Gallery commemorating 100 years since women in the UK received the right to vote. The 2019 exhibition is a celebration of this.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

This 2019 exhibition looks at the experiences from the 4 National Trust properties included in The National Portrait Gallery partnership. At The Workhouse, we worked with artist film maker Benjamin Wigley and Newark Emmaus Trust, a housing project for young homeless people. They have created a piece which reflects the differences between the experiences of being a homeless woman today and from when before women had the vote. Watch the result and learn about the production of this film.

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
