December fun thanks to the National Lottery!

December 17, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm

On 17 December 2017, we are opening our doors for free to National Lottery players.

Gainsborough’s House will be throwing open its doors for free to National Lottery players on Sunday 17 December 2017. We are joining National Lottery funded visitor attractions across the UK in saying ‘thanks’ to people who have raised money for good causes by buying a lottery ticket.

Ros Kerslake, Chief Executive of the Heritage Lottery Fund, said:

“December is a wonderful time to experience the UK’s rich, diverse and exciting heritage, which has been transformed by more than £7bn National Lottery funding since 1994. This is a small gesture of thanks and a way of giving something back to the people who buy tickets.”

The idea is simple: anyone who turns up with a National Lottery ticket or scratch card on 17 December gets free entry to the museum in return.


Terms and Conditions

  • One National Lottery ticket provides free entry for up to one family of six to Gainsborough’s House only.
  • All National Lottery games qualify for free entry, including tickets from any National Lottery draw based game or National Lottery Scratchcard. Proof of ticket can be paper or digital.
  • The offer is valid only on Sunday 17 December. Gainsborough’s House is open from 11am to 5pm on Sundays.
  • Gainsborough’s House has the right to refuse entry in the unlikely event of venue reaching capacity, as well as unforeseen circumstances.
  • Tickets will be given at the till in Gainsborough’s House shop when visitors arrive with their National Lottery tickets.
