Gift Aid

Gift Aid enables registered charities to reclaim tax on donations made by a UK taxpayer.

Single Admission to the Museum now includes the voluntary donation of 10%, which enables tax to be reclaimed on the whole ticket price – that’s 25p on every £1.

Annual Membership to the Museum can also be Gift Aided (with no additional voluntary donation needed).

To Gift Aid Your Ticket

If you would like to Gift Aid your admission ticket, please say ‘Yes’ when you are asked at the Reception Desk.

By saying ‘YES’ when asked if you wish to make a Gift Aid donation when you visit, you will be making the following declaration:

‘I would like Bentley Priory Museum to treat my admission as a gift aid donation. I confirm that I have paid an amount of UK income tax or capital gains tax at least equal to the tax the charity reclaims on my donation during the tax year.’

Annual Membership Terms and Conditions

What does Annual Membership cover?

Your annual membership entitles you to unlimited access to the Museum galleries and café during the Museum’s opening hours on open days for 12 months from the start of the membership, with the exception of up to 5 days per year for special Museum events which will require a separate paid ticket to attend.

Can I give my Annual Membership Card to family and friends to use?

Annual membership cards may only be used by the person named on the card.
Please present your membership card and photo I.D. at Reception on arrival when visiting either the galleries or café.

Can my child use the Annual Membership Card on school visits to Bentley Priory Museum?

No, unfortunately not, as the content and support for school visits vary greatly from general visits, school visits are not included in the cost of general admissions.

What do I do if I lose my Annual Membership Card?

If you lose your annual membership card or it is stolen, we can issue a replacement for an administrative fee of £3.00. Please come to the Museum Reception on one of our open days to arrange this.

Can I pay the difference in ticket price to change my single admission to Annual Membership?

Yes, you can pay the difference between your single admission and Annual Membership to change your single admission to Annual Membership. Please note that this can only be done on the day of your visit.

Bentley Priory Museum is an Independent Museum and registered charity (1115243). Please read more about the aims of the charity here.
