FREE days out with the National Lottery #ThanksToYou

Tree Climbing Kingston Lacy

I still remember the National Lottery being launched and the learning curve of how to use the machine and pay out any winnings.

It is scary to think that it is now celebrating its 25th birthday and they have come up with a brilliant way to celebrate.

National Lottery funded projects and attractions are saying #ThanksToYou for the more than £40 billion you’ve raised for good causes over the past 25 years, by offering free entry or special offers at hundreds of venues from 23rd November to 1st December 2019 simply by presenting a National Lottery ticket or scratchcard.

How to see who is taking part

Simply head to and type in your location or postcode and it will show you the venues taking part in the project.

Locally, in Dorset, we have free cinema tickets available at Lighthouse Poole, free entry to Kingston Lacy and 2-for-1 entry at the Tank Museum, to name but a few.

Please check the venue listings for dates, times and other terms and conditions before you travel.

Thanks to You

You can take a valid National Lottery ticket, scratchcard or proof of your online entry to take advantage of the offer.

    I have wanted to visit Kingston Lacey for a while, but the high price of the ticket always put me off. I will definitely take advantage of this campaign of the National Lottery and go visit for free.

  9. Love this campaign! We discovered that a arboretum (Westonbirt) which is local to us is part of this, offering free entry with a ticket etc which I think is amazing and I will definitely be taking the kids!
