Thank you Lottery Players!

To say thank you for the £30m raised for good causes every week by players, National Lottery-funded venues are offering free entry, discounts, and special offers in March 2023.


2 for 1!

We have a special 2 for 1 offer on tickets to a fabulous upcoming concert:

Matilda Lloyd (trumpet) and Richard Gowers (organ) 

Sunday 12 March 3pm

Hailed as ​​“remarkable" by the Daily Telegraph, Matilda Lloyd is a fast-rising young artist with exceptional poise and musicality. She captivates audiences and critics alike with her artistry and communication, with her “flawless sound and virtuosic technique” bringing a unique flair to every performance.​​​ Matilda will be accompanied by Richard Gowers on organ.

 Richard has appeared as a recitalist across Europe, the USA and Australia. His 2018 disc of Messiaen’s La Nativité du Seigneur was a Gramophone ‘Editor’s Choice’. In 2022 he performed the Saint-Saëns ‘Organ’ Symphony with the London Philharmonic Orchestra at the Royal Albert Hall.

The pair will perform a packed programme including pieces by Bach, Vierne, Hakim, Giazotto, Purcell and Damase.

Portico’s Chair Neil McClure said, “We’ve been fortunate to receive National Lottery funding for the restoration of this amazing venue as well as towards concerts such as this one from the Arts Council of Northern Ireland. So this is our way of saying thank you to everyone who has bought a National Lottery ticket, helped us on our journey and made a vital contribution to supporting good causes. We’re excited to invite everyone to hear the trumpet and organ in our fabulous acoustics!”
