December fun at Yorkshire Sculpture Park thanks to The National Lottery #ThanksToYou

27 Nov 2018

From 3 to 9 December 2018, Yorkshire Sculpture Park is offering free parking to National Lottery players.
 
Yorkshire Sculpture Park (YSP) is offering free all-day parking to National Lottery players from 3 to 9 December 2018. The Park is one of hundreds of participating National Lottery-funded visitor attractions across the UK, that are 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 between 3 and 9 December 2018 gets free all-day car parking in return worth £11.
 
The exclusive offer gives National Lottery players access to artworks by some of the world’s greatest artists, set in the stunning Yorkshire landscape, and inspiring temporary exhibitions by artists including Giuseppe Penone, Sean Scully and Norman Ackroyd.
 
Since 2001, YSP has received £3.4 million from The National Lottery which has contributed towards major restoration and development projects, including the purchase of the Chapel, which is now a unique gallery space; the transformation of the estate Kennel Block into a learning centre; and the refurbishment of the Bothy Gallery.
 
Gemma Adams, Head of Development at YSP, said: “We’re really grateful for the financial support that we get from The National Lottery, thanks to its players. As an independent charity, this funding is invaluable and helps us to make our unique ‘art without walls’ offer accessible to more and more people each year.”
