December Fun Thanks To The National Lottery

Burton Constable Hall & Grounds will be throwing open its doors for free to National Lottery players from Monday 3rd to Thursday 6th December 2018. We are joining participating 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.

Burton Constable is delighted to be taking part in the National Lottery 'Thank You' event.  You can see the most recent project at Burton Constable that has been funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.  The Carved Room in the Hall is a spectacular early 18th century Gentleman's study, now fully restored by specialist craftsmen, incorporating original and recreated decorative wood carving.  Twenty years of research and a lottery grant of £65,000 made this restoration possible.

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.”
