Last year I broke the news of the National Lottery creating a nationwide ticket scheme. This year the National Lottery has brought back a scheme which allowed lotto players to claim a £25 theatre token for free.
All you had do to get your hands on a lotto ticket or scratchcard, go to https://www.loveyourlocaltheatre.com/ and redeem this for a £25 theatre token that has a three month redemption window which can be used at any venue which accepts theatre tokens.
All of these tokens were claimed within nine hours, however any unused tokens will be available from 11am on the 18th April 2023
2021 Ticket Scheme and Original Article:
After breaking the news earlier this week, its now confirmed the National Lottery is giving away hundreds of thousands of theatre tickets across the country in the aptly named ‘Love Your Local Theatre’ offer.
Adminstered by UK Theatre,when you buy a ticket for a participating show at eligible venues during march, you’ll get another free ticket courtesy of the National Lottery ! The only caveat – you need to purchase a National Lottery product.
The National Lottery is funding the deal as a thank you to players while also encouraging people back into Theatres as they continue to recover from the perilous situation caused by the pandemic. An industry that itself receives a substantial amount of funds courtesy of players of the National Lottery. Each week, National Lottery players between them raise over 30 million pounds each week for various good causes.
All National Lottery products qualify for this deal, including National Lottery draw-based games, scratchcards, and online instant win games. The purchase can be made in store, through the National Lottery website or via their app.
This deal comes hot off the toes of another National Lottery offer, which gave away a number of tickets to Crossroads Pantomime productions across the country as part of a sponsorship deal for their 2021/2022 season.
Earlier this week the National Lottery also presented The Big Night Of Musicals, a concert celebrating theatre across the country that will also be broadcast on BBC One this weekend. The show features a huge array of london, local and touring shows such as Bat Out Of Hell, The Wiz, Beauty and the Beast and Dear Evan Hansen.
For this scheme, players can redeem the offer up to five times! Tickets are bookable from the 1st of Febuary 2022 and with venues across the country from the Church Theatre Bromley, Hall for Cornwall, Birmingham Rep and Newcastle Theatre Royal there really is a venue for everyone.
Please always remember to gamble responsibly
Full details of the scheme will soon be revealed on the Love Your Local Theatre specially created site – loveyourlocaltheatre.com/
