National Lottery Cinema Day 2018 Take part in the nationwide event

On Sunday, 30 September, Camelot will be rewarding National Lottery players with free cinema tickets for National Lottery Cinema Day - a nationwide event celebrating cinema-going in the UK and the National Lottery's important contributions to the continued success of UK film.

Camelot, the BFI and the Film Audience Network are working together to bring together exhibitors to take part. Participation is free - all ticket sales up to a maximum per ticket subsidy will be covered by National Lottery Cinema Day funding - and open to all Film Hub North members, whether your a full-time cinema or a non-theatrical exhibitor.

The event is a great opportunity to attract new audiences, engage infrequent attendees and experiment with programming - all with minimal risk. It's a chance to put your organisation in the spotlight for one special day, make a clear, compelling offer to your community and feature in the media and PR campaign for a huge national event.
