Lottery Open Week takes place 9 - 17 March 2024
Since The National Lottery’s first draw took place on 19 November 1994, more than £45 billion has been raised for good causes in the areas of arts, sport, film, heritage and community - that's over £30 million raised for good causes each week.
Now, to say thank you, loads of these Lottery funded places are taking part in National Lottery Open Week, to say thank you.
What is The National Lottery Open Week?
The idea is simple: anyone who visits a National Lottery supported project and shows a National Lottery ticket or scratch card, between 9 and 17 March 2023, is able to take up a special offer. This could be free entry, a special discount even a great freebie!
There are lots of great attractions in our region taking part. Some offers may require pre-booking and may only be available on specific dates. Click on each link for the relevant details.
