Create a hullabaloo this new years eve and help us scare away bad spirits for a bountiful orchard crop next year.
- Booking not needed
- Free event (admission applies)
Wassails are traditional rituals designed to promote a good crop in the orchard. In the seventeenth century a successful Perry crop was important for a sustained source of beverages. We'll be singing and shouting the orchard into good health, join us for mulled perry and music. Feel free to bring your own percussion instruments, even if it's two wooden spoons!

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.
|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.
Please note that, as of 2017, there is a single entry fee for Dyrham Park that covers entry to the park, garden, house, tea-room and shop. Free entry to National Trust members.
