Christmas offer at Mining Art Gallery

22 December 2017

All National Lottery players will have a lucky ticket in Bishop Auckland this Christmas as the Mining Art Gallery opens its doors for free.

Anyone who takes an official National Lottery ticket or scratch card to the Mining Art Gallery, Bishop Auckland from Wednesday, 27 to Saturday, 30 December, 2017 will receive free entry on that day.

The Mining Art Gallery is the first new attraction to be opened by The Auckland Project. While not funding the gallery directly, National Lottery players have already contributed £11.4m of funding to the wider Project, via the Heritage Lottery Fund, (HLF).

This special seasonal offer from the Mining Art Gallery is a way of saying thank you to those who have raised money for good causes by buying a National Lottery ticket.

To enjoy free entry to the Mining Art Gallery, visitors can present a paper or digital ticket, with any date and from any National Lottery draw based game or scratch card, on December 27, 28, 29 and 30. One ticket will provide free entry for one person to the Gallery.

The Mining Art Gallery, Bishop Auckland Market Place is open daily from 10am-4pm.
