Greenway Literary Festival

Why not get inspired at the very first Greenway Literary Festival in celebration of the ten year anniversary of Greenway House being opened to the public for the first time. Part of the #LoveGreenway year of celebrations.

  • Booking essential
  • Admission applies

Full festival programme available early March 2019.

We can't think of a better place to celebrate books, reading and writing, than the holiday home of Agatha Christie. A changing daily programme of workshops, talks and activities will explore the literary heritage of Greenway, with a children's book week in the May half term, followed by a week exploring crime writing and other genres.

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...

Parking charges for non-National Trust members: £3 per session.

Free parking for members (please show membership card upon arrival and display car sticker).
