Dear Future: I Leave This Place For You - Sizergh

Learn more about how a gift in your will could help us carry out crucial conservation work at Sizergh.

  • Booking essential
  • Free event

Without gifts in wills, we simply wouldn’t be able to look after the extraordinary places in our care. This special event will take you behind the scenes to see first-hand how your support is helping us carry out crucial conservation work every day, and how a gift in your own will could help to safeguard the future of our special places.

Join members of our expert team at Sizergh, a beautiful medieval house with rich gardens and estate, home to the Strickland family for over 800 years. Take a tour of the house, gardens and estate with a member of our specialist team. A local solicitor will talk about the importance of having an up to date will and we'll share information about our free will writing service. Then, over light refreshments, you'll have the opportunity to chat further and learn more about why gifts in wills are so important to our work.
