Every time you play the National Lottery you’re supporting UK film production, exhibition and innovation, as well as community projects across the country.
To say thank you, venues nationwide – including Filmhouse – are inviting you to see a FREE film on Sunday 25 August with your ticket from Saturday 24 August’s Lotto Double Prize Event draw.
Since The National Lottery’s first draw took place on 19 November 1994, more than £40 billion has been raised for good causes in the areas of arts, sport, heritage and community. The 25th birthday is a moment to celebrate the extraordinary impact The National Lottery has had on the UK, and to say thank you to National Lottery players for contributing around £30 million to good causes every week.
The National Lottery has made more than 5,350 millionaires but its primary purpose is giving to good causes - over 565,000 individual grants have been awarded across the UK, that’s the equivalent of 200 life-changing projects in every UK postcode district.
