WISHes come true at The Story Museum thanks to The National Lottery

  |  Published: Dec 4th 2018

On the 8th and 9th December 2018, The Story Museum are offering free tickets to our Christmas production WISH to National Lottery players. As one of hundreds of participating National Lottery-funded visitor attractions across the UK, we’ll be saying ‘thanks’ to people who have raised money for good causes by buying a lottery ticket.

The idea is simple: any visitor who presents a National Lottery ticket or scratch card on 8th and 9th December 2018 gets up to 2 free tickets to our family Christmas show WISH in return.

The Story Museum has received £3 million of lottery funds through the Arts Council England capital programme and the Heritage Lottery Fund. Their leadership enabled us to raise a further £2.1m in match funding and advance the major transformation of our most unusual museum, allowing generations of future visitors to experience, share and enjoy some of the world’s greatest stories in many great ways.

From 2020 our redeveloped Museum will include 10 amazing new story spaces to explore and enjoy: a Whispering Wood, a Treasure Chamber, an Enchanted Library and much more! This will all be made possible thanks to the support of Heritage Lottery Fund and Arts Council England.

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 £7.8bn 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.”


Darren Henley, Chief Executive of Arts Council England said:  

 “Every time someone plays the National Lottery, they’re contributing to good causes across the UK. Thanks To You is a great opportunity to thank the players for the incredible things they’ve helped make happen and to celebrate the connection between buying a National Lottery ticket and supporting extraordinary, life-changing art and culture across the country.”


Caroline Jones, Co-Director and CEO of The Story Museum says:

“Simply put, the Story Museum would not be where we are today without the support of both the Arts Council and the Heritage Lottery Fund. They have made repeat and generous grants towards all aspects of our creative and learning programmes as well as our major capital redevelopment. Lottery ticket buyers of the UK – we and our thousands of young visitors thank you!”
