Right I don't actually know what Civic voice is but it says if you are a member of the National Trust already you can give this voucher to a family member or friend. I guess you, me and everyone surely must be a friend of someone in the civic voice!!!( what ever it is)

Original Poster

There are hundreds of places to visit type your post code in the where to visit bit and take your pick

kippy

do we need to have an accompanying Civic Voice pass or something?



Says on main national trust site it can be given to friend or family if already a member, so assume no need to show any proof of being civic voice member!

Do the search yourself - at least the OP took the trouble to make the voucher available to forum members.

cheers. Also noticed this while attempting to get an E Heritage pass!

Interestingly it says no photocopies, but my printer only prints in black and white - which can look like a photocopy. How do they expect to see an absolutely accurate copy of this 'pass'? I really don't want to end up in an embarrassing situation in front of a queue of National Trust enthusiasts.

Original Poster

Should be fine I used a black and white copy myself, I think it is a standard thing with vouchers they all say it.

could you not keep using the same voucher or do they note down your name on the system or something?

Assuming you can print out multiples to get the lot of you in for free, One voucher per member of the family?

does anyone know if more than one can be used at once?

Goodness! Do you realise the National Trust is a charity?! Enjoy the free admission, but don't abuse it.

If you have kids it might be worth registering

Wel the two I know of near me in Cambridge are Wimpole Farm and Anglesey Abbey and they are not on the exception list. There are a lot of destinations not on that list. Rather than knock the OP do a bit of research yourself or move along.

Thanks op going to be a nice weekend I see and I my own my own with the kids this will save a mundane day in the garden........

Voted hot! Nice find!

Thanks! :*) Can't wait to get out.....the only problem is guaranteeing fine weather!

Voted hot as it's a fab.deal if your intended place of visit is accepting the voucher.

Be good if people could post back their experience of using this - particularly if more than one can be used at a time

It seems this offer has been available for quite a while if you look into the national trust page:
http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/get-involved/competitions-and-offers/offers/view-page/item713049/

And if you compare the venues that accept this voucher between the last year one and the current one, you'll notice the total number of places is significantly reduced.... May be there were too many people entering the parks with free voucher and they want to stop it..

It is a charity, but like alot of charties, the ones at the top still take a six figure salary, (you can view their accounts) so don't worry yourselves to much!!

I am really in two minds about joining the National Trust. I don't have many NT properties near me so don't know whether I would get my money's worth. So I am pretty much left with pay as you go. However, I did park on their land the other day and was charged an astronomical parking fee of £9!!! oO

I wish there was just one heritage organisation for the whole of the UK. At the moment, you pay once for Cadw, once for English Heritage, then again for National Trust. It's a real pain.

We used to be members of NT but have had to give it up this year due to finances. It is a charity and unfortunately it's run like one too! We always 'renewed' our membership online. There's no facility to do that but simply cancelling your old membership and then taking out a new one online is so much cheaper and you can get a deal were they give you a free set of binoculars. Every single year we used to get the renewal through the door and every single year we rang up to ask why it was cheaper to purchase a membership online and every year the same answer...

"that's just how it works sir".
"So can you not give me the same deal over the phone?" I asked.
"No sorry we can't do that". They reply.
"But I'll simply cancel my membership with you now and then take out a new membership online. That's going to cost the NT even more in administration fees than it needs to! Where's the sense in that?" I would ask.
"Sorry, we can't do anything about that!"

CLUELESS! So that's why, every single year, we'd cancel our membership and then renew online. The NT is a charity, a charity we have spent a considerable amount of money with over the years in membership fees and even more in purchases from the sites, but it is managed very poorly. Which, given the salaries of some senior execs within the NT, really is unforgivable.

Heat Added - Great Find, just a shame I didn't know about it earlier this year as I could have printed a few out and used them for a weeks holiday in Yorkshire!

Great deal. A chance to visit these sites. Thanks CV.

Bril, many thanks!

Hot... unfortunately not valid on bank holiday weekends which is when I wanted it.

then join for 1 year
as you say, do 5 NT places (in a year) and at a tenner a time parking.... it pays for itself
let alone the entrance fees.
Do it as a couple and its still cheap (and no one checks the ID of either person)

but yes, agree it is a bit of a pain that there is no 'one' organisation or one for all ticket option.

Thanks, OP - there are plenty of more NT places to go, and we might give it a try this weekend.

Excellent - thanks to the OP!

If anyone has CIVIC account, please share what it does please...

They refused it at dyrham park this morning. They said it should be a card with names at the back.

it says

This card must be surrendered uponadmission and is not transferable … This card must be surrendered uponadmission and is not transferable againstthe cost of membership.



Card ...

Well here could be part of the problem.
http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/get-involved/competitions-and-offers/offers/view-page/item713049/


and more details here
http://www.civicvoice.org.uk/about/partners/the-national-trust/

The person issueing the pass is supposed to be a member of the civic society.
However, it is clearly still a download, not a card - despite the words

Perhaps printing out the page would help others.
That said, you should be able to call/contact or give the civic society membership No
And I suspect that is what the NT person was expecting to see on the back of the printed out "entry" and maybe in the additional instructions that a true member would get.

As the cost appears to be 1.50 per member of a civic society,
And your local socierty makes the application.
When you are a Civic trust member, and it remains an exceedingly good deal
and worth supporting such a small charity - plus it gets you intro some 250 off places of theirs also.
