The National Lottery Open Week is returning in 2021, but what is it?
The National Lottery Open Week
£30 million is raised each week for good causes by players taking part in the lottery. The National Lottery Open Week is a way to say thank you.
It offers a ‘Ticket to Your Happy Place’. It unlocks special offers, exclusive discounts and free entry to participating venues across the UK.
The benefits are open to anyone with a valid lottery ticket or scratchcard. It will run from 5 June to 13 June.
The Civic, Holmfirth
Those participating includes The Civic in Holmfirth. It will be open each morning between Monday 7 June and Friday 11 June. They will offer drinks discount vouchers to visitors who show a National Lottery Ticket or scratchcard.
Judith Patrick, Chair of Holmfirth Civic Hall Community Trust, which runs The Civic, Holmfirth said: “We’re delighted to be taking part in The National Lottery Open Week this year. We’ve been fortunate to receive National Lottery funding via Arts Council England and Sport England, which supported our running costs throughout the Covid-19 pandemic when for large parts, we had to remain closed.
“So, this is our way of saying thank you to everyone who has bought a National Lottery ticket, helped us on our journey and made a vital contribution to supporting good causes. We’re excited to welcome you back soon.”
Ros Kerslake, Chief Executive of The National Lottery Heritage Fund and Chair of the National Lottery Forum, said: “[It] is a really exciting moment in the year for us, where an amazing variety of venues and projects across the UK give thanks to National Lottery players for the £30 million they raise each week for Good Causes.
“Now, more than ever, people are excited to rediscover their happy place, or find a new one close to home, and we’re proud that so many incredible spaces across the sport, arts, heritage and community sectors have signed up to offer their thanks.”
