The event sees National Lottery funded projects across the United Kingdom offer free entry and other special offers to thank it and players who raise £30m every week for good causes.

People just need to present a National Lottery ticket or scratchcard for free entry.

Peter Gowland, of Hartlepower, said: “We’re delighted to be taking part in The National Lottery Open Week this year.

“We’ve been fortunate to receive National Lottery funding, which has enabled us to establish a new Voluntary and Community Sector (VCS) unit to support Hartlepool’s charities, community groups and social enterprises.

“This is our way of saying thank you to everyone who has bought a National Lottery ticket, helped HartlePower on our journey and made a vital contribution to supporting good causes.”

The offer will run between Monday, March 21, and Thursday, March 24, with 30-minute tours taking place between 10am and 2.30pm followed by free refreshments.

Everyone who takes part will be entered into a free prize draw with the winner receiving £25 of National Lottery scratchcards.

Booking in advance is not required.
