B&NES Discovery Card holders should also bring a current Council Tax bill, utilities bill or bank statement as proof of address if your card has expired and you have been unable to renew it. Unfortunately, photocard driving licenses cannot be used as proof of residence as they are not always updated if a person moves outside the area.

What is Gift Aid?

If you are a UK tax payer, you can Gift Aid your admission ticket or membership and make it grow by a further 25% as the Museum is able to claim the tax back on the whole amount paid. And it is still only 25% if you are a higher rate tax payer.
