Love Your Local Theatre - logo

Thanks to support from The National Lottery, Oxford Playhouse is delighted to be part of the Love Your Local Theatre ticket giveaway for March & April 2022.

During the next few weeks, when you buy a ticket for a participating show playing in March, you will get another ticket FREE courtesy of the National Lottery.

The National Lottery is subsidising over 180,000 tickets at theatres across the UK as a thank you to National Lottery players for the £30m they raise each week for good causes - including the arts and theatre within that. The initiative also hopes to encourage people to support their local theatre as venues across the UK look to recover from the impact of Covid-19.

Visit for details of participating theatres and shows (and keep checking back as more venues are added).This promotion is available to anyone who is a National Lottery player and possesses a National Lottery product. This campaign and promotion is run by UK Theatre. The money for this initiative is coming from a National Lottery promotional fund. It is not being funded by money allocated for National Lottery Good Causes or by Camelot.

To be part of this fabulous promotion, all you need to do is:

  • Purchase a national lottery ticket (proof of purchase may be required). You must be aged 18+ and a UK resident.
  • Book two tickets for the performance of your choice (use “LOTTO241” when you checkout, and you will receive one full price ticket and the second ticket for FREE - max 2 tickets per customer)
  • Enjoy the show!

With thanks to The National Lottery and UK Theatre.
