Lincoln Drill Hall

Lincoln Drill Hall is a thriving and friendly entertainment venue and cafe in the centre of Lincoln. Its packed programme includes theatre, comedy, live music, dance, family events, talks and films, workshops, classes and much more.

Since launching in 2004, Lincoln Drill Hall has become a thriving cultural hub for both the city and county, delivering an extensive programme of activity.

The venue now attracts over 150,000 people annually for live theatre, comedy, music, dance, literature, family events, classes, workshops and corporate meetings and hospitality. The venue also hosts the Lincoln Beer Festival each year and pantomime through the Christmas period.

Lincoln’s Drill Hall was built in 1890 and for the first part of the 20th Century was used as a military & police training hall. Over time the building moved into public use, hosting dances, wrestling, bingo and live bands, most notably The Rolling Stones in 1963.

In 2004, the building re-opened after a £2.6m refurbishment as Lincoln Drill Hall, an arts and community venue, with a fully equipped 370 seat auditorium, 50 seat studio theatre, vibrant cafe bar and meeting rooms.

For a full programme of shows, see the Lincoln Drill Hall website.
