Books - a Friday afternoon talk
Our Friday afternoon talks provide unique insights into the many facets of our collection at Melford Hall.
- Booking advisable
- Admission applies
This series of talks will bring out some of the books in our library, giving you an opportunity to see the beautiful illustrations and engravings inside the books.
The focus in April and May will be on nature and the beauty of Spring. In summer we will be concentrating on books associated with travel, and finishing the series in October and November with naval books.

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|
