Jolly midwinter merriment

The court house and gardens will be sparkling and festive with music, dancing, games and activities for all. See the decorations on Fridays and enjoy the entertainment on Saturdays and Sundays throughout December.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Elegant decorations adorn many of the Court's rooms and it will be brimming with festive atmosphere, with lots to see and do. Join in with a singalong or simply listen to the talented musicians, play a game in the library, and see what's happening in the long gallery. Relive memories from the past and share yours with us. Father Christmas will be in residence, and there'll be a special festive menu in the restaurant.

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 or
  • Standard admission

If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you the Gift Aid Admission prices. But it's entirely up to you which ticket you choose. If you want the Standard Admission instead, just let us know when you come to pay.

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: Payment of the additional percentage donation is entirely voluntary, so if you prefer to pay the standard admission please advise our reception staff at the till point.

  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 donations must be supported by a valid Gift Aid declaration and a Gift Aid declaration can only cover donations made by an individual for him/herself or for him/herself and members of his/her family.
