Wassailing and Campfire Cooking
Prepare to make some noise! Join us this February half term to wassail around the orchard, waking up the trees from their winter slumber, banishing evil spirits and ensuring a good harvest.
- Booking not needed
- Admission applies
Wassail is at 2pm, Monday to Friday.
You can also have a go at toasting marshmallows over the fire all day and complete one of your 50 things to do before 11 ¾. It's good fun for adults too!
Please note that there is a mistake in our spring "Near You" newsletter - Merrie Noyse are not joining us this year over February half term, but will be here later on in the year.
- per bag of marshmallows £1.00
Minimum group size 15
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:
|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|
