The Government and Camelot are celebrating 10 years of lottery funding for landscapes and buildings such as the Eden Project.
Events will run throughout summer and up to a National Lottery Day on 6 November, the culmination of celebrations for the £15 billion spent on 160,000 good causes.
The lottery says this amounts to the biggest programme of civic regeneration since the 19th century.
Arts minister Estelle Morris said: “Thanks to the British public, over the last 10 years the National Lottery has raised so much money for good causes. It is right that on its 10th birthday we take the opportunity to celebrate the lottery’s success.”
Morris also unveiled plans for a search for the nation’s favourite projects. A national vote across various categories will pinpoint schemes that have made the most to national life.
Camelot chief executive Dianne Thompson said the lottery was “a great British success story”.
