Lincoln Drill Hall has been at the heart of our community for almost 130 years, providing entertainment and a social focus for generation after generation. Now, however, significant funding cuts mean that our iconic venue faces the very real threat of closure.

Chris Kirkwood, Lincoln Drill Hall CEO: ‘We need to raise £130,000 each year to bridge this funding gap and enable us to continue the vital work we do. So please support our BE A BRICK campaign. For just £10 a year you can buy a stake in the future of the Drill Hall and help to prevent its closure. £130,000 is a big challenge, but if everyone who visits the Drill Hall supports this campaign, we’ll hit that target, so please donate.’

Each year the Drill Hall offers 400 live arts experiences, including the very best in theatre, comedy, music, dance, circus and its Christmas panto – events that are enjoyed by over 100,000 people annually.


The city’s communities also benefit from the venue’s extensive participation programmes. These include workshops for pre-school children, drama classes for children aged 3 to 16, Butterfly Club Nights and Dreamland Drama classes, which serve over 1500 adults with learning disabilities each year, The Caterpillar Club events taking place at special educational needs schools across Lincolnshire and Full Bloom dance classes for over 50s.

Each year the Drill Hall contributes £1.75 million to the city’s economy and an estimated £2.3 million in added economic activity. And over the last 15 years the Drill Hall’s artistic programme has enhanced Lincoln’s regional and national cultural reputation, providing high quality arts experiences and opportunities for all.

So, please BE A BRICK and BUY A BRICK and help Lincoln Drill Hall continue to make a real difference to Lincoln’s communities, economy and reputation. To donate visit www.lincolndrillhall.com/be-a-brick/, call 01522 873894 or pop along to the venue.
