Gift Aid

The British Music Experience Trust is a not-for-profit charity (charity registration 1125752).  Your Gift Aid admission price includes a voluntary donation of 10%, provided you have paid enough UK Income or Capital Gains Tax (to cover all of your Gift Aid donations in this tax year), the British Music Experience is able to reclaim tax on the whole amount you have paid – that’s 25p on every £1.  This extra money enables us to advance the education and appreciation of the art, history and science of music in Britain.

This means we get an extra 25p for every £1 you spend at no extra cost to you.
