Free Tours For National Lottery Players
June 12 @ 11:30 am - 12:15 pmFree
We are pleased to announce that we will be one of six Northern Ireland organisations taking part in The National Lottery Open Week, with free guided tours of the Library on Saturday 5th and Saturday 12th June (10am-10.45am and 11.30 am-12.15pm each day).
The Open Week is designed to thank National Lottery players by providing special offers and discounts to anyone with a valid National Lottery ticket or scratch card.
The Library and No 5 Vicars’ Hill have been fortunate to receive National Lottery funding in the past, including for the restoration of No 5 Vicars’ Hill (the former Diocesan Registry Office) which opened ten years ago. Currently the Library is benefiting from a Resilience and an Endowment grant. The Endowment Grant is matching £1:£1 wherever the Library can raise up to £1 million over the next two years. Once raised the new Endowment will secure the future management and direction of the Library and provide for its ongoing sustainability.
Places for the FREE guided tours are limited and offered on a first come, first served basis. To reserve a place, or find out further information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ros Kerslake, Chief Executive of The National Lottery Heritage Fund and Chair of the National Lottery Forum, said: “The National Lottery Open Week 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.”
