National Lottery offers £25 of free theatre tokens for players with an email address and ticket reference number
Theatre fans can get £25 off their next show - or their Christmas pantomime tickets - all for the price of a lottery ticket.
Theatre Tokens has joined forces with The National Lottery to offer players a free £25 theatre voucher.
All that is needed to claim a voucher is a Lotto, Scratchcard or Instant Win Game ticket - where prices start from just £1 - which can come from either a recent purchase or an old ticket you still have from playing a game in 2023.
Those with a relevant ticket must then enter the first four or five digits of the ticket number - that appear before the first hyphen - along with an email address into the Love Your Local Theatre website in order to be sent a voucher.
One voucher per lottery ticket and email address is available - and it can be spent at more than 300 participating theatres.
And while you only have three weeks in order to spend your voucher - you can buy tickets for future shows and even pantomimes this Christmas say those behind the promotion.
The £25 vouchers will be accepted under the same system that local theatres accept theatre tokens - so it is advised that budding theatre goers are sure of this process before booking a show they wish to see using their £25 discount.
The campaign is acting as a thank you to National Lottery players who raise £30 million every week for good causes, including support for the performing arts and theatres during the pandemic. The giveaway is also aimed at helping theatres through the current cost-of-living crisis with £1 million of theatre vouchers available to National Lottery players.
Vouchers can be claimed until the end of May or until £1 million tokens have been requested.
