December fun thanks to the National Lottery!

Free event in Gloucestershire

From the 11-15 December 2017 National Lottery Players can visit the Corinium Museum for free between 2-4pm.
The Corinium Museum will be throwing open its doors for free to National Lottery players during the week of 11 to 15 December 2017, from 2-4pm. They 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.
The Corinium Museum has been awarded £676,900 from the Heritage Lottery Fund for their exciting Stone Age to Corinium project, which will create new Stone Age, Bronze Age, Iron Age and Early Roman Galleries, as well as an inspiring garden space and a dedicated “hands-on” Discovery Centre and garden.
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 11-15th December gets free entry from 2-4pm in return.
Amanda Hart, Museum Director, said: “Thanks to National Lottery players we will be able to transform the front part of the Museum, creating a warm welcome for visitors and stunning new galleries which highlight the star objects from the prehistoric Cotswolds. The Discovery Centre will be an inspirational learning space for a diverse range of activities to be enjoyed by all our visitors. The Heritage Lottery Fund has been a long-term supporter of the Museum, having previously funded a major project at the site in 2001.”
