Heritage Lottery Fund 'Thanks To You' Week

Visitors to Westonbirt Arboretum with a valid National Lottery ticket or scratch card will receive free entry and a free Westonbirt guide book, from Monday 11 - Sunday 17 December (inclusive)

The Westonbirt Heritage Lottery Funded Project is coming to an end. HLF granted the arboretum £1.9million in 2012 towards Phase One of the Westonbirt Project. Over the past five years this funding has helped us to; build a new Biffa Award Welcome Building and car park, restore the downland and old car park area back to a meadow, restore our historic boundaries, produce a new App, four new trails, bring new hard to reach audiences to the arboretum through our community project, provide specialist training for our volunteers and recruit 6 new members of staff!

To say thank you to Heritage Lottery Players for their support, we will be participating in the Hertiage Lottery Fund 'Thanks To You' week. From Monay 11 - Sunday 17 December visitors with a National Lottery ticket or scratch card will receive free entry to the arboretum and a free Westonbirt Guide Book worth £5!
