To celebrate The National Lottery's 25th birthday, we're joining in their #ThanksToYou campaign

The campaign celebrates the contributions National Lottery players have made over the past 25 years, and their support in raising money for good causes, including the arts, sport, heritage and community.

From 23 to 29 November 2019, we have a special offer for National Lottery players. Joining other participating National Lottery funded visitor attractions across the UK, we're saying thanks to everyone who has raised money for good causes by buying a lottery ticket.

The idea is simple: any visitor who presents a National Lottery ticket or scratchcard between 23 and 29 November will receive 2-for-1 tickets to The Credit Suisse Exhibition: Gauguin Portraits, 10% off all coffee and cake in The National Café: Grab & Go area, and a 10% discount in our shops.

The Credit Suisse Exhibition: Gauguin Portraits

Don't miss the first-ever exhibition devoted to the portraits of Paul Gauguin.

Spanning his early years as an artist through to his later years spent in French Polynesia, the exhibition shows how the French artist revolutionised the portrait.
