Gallery Tour: A Cocktail of Art

Take a walking tour of Dudmaston's eclectic mix of Modern Art.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Sir George Labouchere once said that seeing a collection of abstract art made him feel as if he'd had 'a number of very good cocktails.' Meet our art volunteer and immerse yourself in the stories behind the paintings in our Modern Art collection. Cocktails sadly not included. This is a free activity and spaces are limited.

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

 

*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.
