National Lottery players can get in free to see the gardens at Blickling Hall on Wednesday, December 13, as the National Trust says thank you to people who have raised money for its conservation work by buying a lottery ticket.

National Trust places have benefited from support from the Heritage Lottery Fund, meaning vital work can be completed.

Jo Bosch, marketing and visitor manager at Blickling, said: “Without grant support like this, we wouldn’t have been able to undertake some of our most important and innovative conservation work. Grant income, as well as help from members, supporters and volunteers allows us to look after special places for ever, for everyone. This is a small gesture of our thanks.”

Any visitor who presents a National Lottery ticket or scratch card will be admitted for free to participating National Trust places. A standard family ticket, gardens only, normally costs £23.60. See https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/
