A Boosbeck Furniture Showroom exhibition

Stop by the Boosbeck Furniture Showroom in the exhibition space to learn about one of the ways Jim and Ruth Pennyman helped the local communities.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

The Pennymans helped local unemployed miners learn carpentry skills when the local mines closed in

the 1930s. They built ‘Boosbeck’ furniture, named after where it was made; we’ll be recreating a Boosbeck furniture showroom and displaying new parts of the collection in the exhibition room in the house.

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
