'First Women UK', a photography exhibition by Anita Corbin

A decade-long project to capture the portraits of 100 pioneering women of the twenty-first century arrives at the Fox Talbot Museum this autumn.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Anita Corbin's 'First Women UK' exhibition was created to mark the centenary of the Representation of the People Act, which granted the vote to women over 30-years old and paved the way for universal suffrage.

The selection of striking images on display, handpicked from the original 100, capture innate pioneering spirit - yet also the nature of the individual woman across all manner of disciplines, including sport, media, military, business, arts, music and politics.

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...

Children's prices apply for those who are 17 years old or under. Under 5s go free.
