England’s biggest heritage celebration, Heritage Open Day Week, is happening all this week between the 13th and 22nd September. The annual festival is a celebration of museums, heritage sites and other historical and cultural causes across England.
Many of these heritage causes in North Lincolnshire are self-funded, requiring donations and run by volunteers- and you can support them on Lincs Lotto!
There are lots of heritage causes you can support, with each cause bringing something different to make up North Lincolnshire’s unique cultural heritage. Ticket sales through Lincs Lotto help keep these causes running and open to the general public.
