The Lord of Misrule Returns

Once met never forgotten!

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

The Lord of Misrule is returning to Montacute this year with his wit, music and a quip for everyone he meets. Also there will be much music, dance, feasting and drinking down at the old stables.

Don't miss the grand parade at 5pm each day led by the Lord of Misrule himself which starts at the old stables.

The ground floor of the house will be set for a feast and lit in a very atmospheric manner and the whole property will be sympathetically decorated.

A great festive experience for any age.

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
