Summer Games on the Lawn

Join us on Thursday afternoons throughout August for games on the lawn.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Join our outdoor event team for an afternoon of games on the lawn, inspired by times gone by!

Different games will be organised each week, with self-led and supervised activities. Adults can join in too! For those who prefer a quieter time with less people, there will be a 'quiet hour' at the end of the day (3-4pm)

an adult must accompany children at all times.

Dogs on leads are welcome. Donations welcome.

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
