AT ASSISTED LEEDS ICONIC BUILDINGS
From 11 to 17 December 2017, National Lottery-funded heritage attractions are saying ‘thank you’ to National Lottery players by offering free entry, treats or discounts at more than 350 UK-Based National Lottery funded visitor’s attractions.
Leeds Grand Theatre will be saying ‘thank you’ by giving away copies of the book Grand Memories: The life and times of the Grand Theatre and Opera House, Leeds*, whilst Hyde Park Picture House (HPPH) will be handing out free teas and coffees.
The idea is simple; any visitor who presents a National Lottery ticket or scratchcard between Monday 11 to Saturday 16 December at Leeds Grand Theatre Box Office can claim a copy of the book. Similarly, anybody presenting a National Lottery ticket or scratchcard between Monday 11 to Sunday 17 December at HPPH will receive a free tea or coffee (T&C’s apply.

Leeds Grand Theatre received funding from the Heritage Lottery fund to undertake major restoration work on the grade II* listed Victorian theatre and to create a major base for the arts in the north of England by improving both backstage and front of house areas. The transformation breathed new life into the 1,550-seat venue; state of the art technology and improved facilities, including easier access for the disabled, now sit side-by-side with the original 1878 Victorian grandeur and elaborate décor.
Hyde Park Picture House has recently been backed by the Heritage Lottery Fund to start work on The Picture House Project. The Picture House Project will protect and preserve the historic features of the cinema, whilst making the building more sustainable, more comfortable and more accessible.
