Feel the love with our ‘My Lincoln Drill Hall’ story page!

The people featured on this page have taken the time to share their experiences of Lincoln Drill Hall and tell everyone why they love this place so much. For over 120 years this building has been at the heart of Lincoln’s social life. It’s provided a place to come together and celebrate, learn, enjoy each other’s company and relax in the centre of our beautiful city. Since its rebirth in 2004 it’s continued to do all that and more! From confidence building to life changing opportunities to get involved in the arts, we try to change people’s lives for the better.

We’ve been so touched at the out-pouring of support for our ‘Be A Brick’ fundraising campaign, and the performers who visit us have been just as generous with their time and talents!  Enjoy their messages here, and keep an eye out for more to come!

Why not send your ‘My Lincoln Drill Hall’ story in too and let us know what you love about your local arts centre? Email them to us and we’ll pop them on our page.
