Free entry to Newark Air Museum


WBWire covid19 728x90 1

On Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th December 2018, National Lottery Players can get free admission.

Newark Air Museum will be one of the hundreds of participating National Lottery-funded visitor attractions across the UK 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 Scratchcard on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th December 2018, will gain free admission to the air museum site.

Back in 2003 the museum received £453,000 from The National Lottery. The money helped to pay for the construction of Aircraft Display Hall 2 on the Southfield Site.

Tracey Crouch, former Minister for Sport and Civil Society, said: “This campaign is a fantastic way for National Lottery projects to give back to the players who support them every week, raising millions of pounds for good causes. There are hundreds of venues hosting events up and down the country, so I encourage everyone to get out there and take advantage of what is on in their area.”

Museum Trustee, Howard Heeley said, “Thanks to National Lottery players we were able to get around twenty-five aircraft and cockpits displayed under cover, thereby protecting their condition for future generations of visitors to see and enjoy.” He concluded, “Through this #ThanksToYou offer it is nice to be able to give a little bit of enjoyment back to the local community.”
