Elgar Insights - Elgar and The Beatles

Join us for a very special Elgar Insights - Elgar and The Beatles. Enthusiastic Elgar expert Richard Westwood- Brookes will be joined by members of the Worcester Ukulele band to provide an insightful and musical talk about Elgar and the Beatles

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

This joint venture was thought of my two volunteers Richard and Elaine. Richard delights audiences with talks every Sunday and Elaine - a key member of the Worcester Ukulele band enchants visitors on reception and through her event work. Together they came up with the idea to join forces whilst looking at the interesting connections between Edward Elgar and The Beatles

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
