Lincoln Drill Hall

Lincoln Drill Hall opened in 1890, originally constructed as a military and police training hall. Various types of entertainment were held at the hall following the Second World War with the most notable performance being one of The Rolling Stones’ earliest gigs on New Year’s Eve 1962. It was closed in 1999, but was reopened four years later following a £2.6m refurbishment programme.

After the refurbishment Lincoln Drill Hall is now a modern entertainment venue in Lincoln and acts as a café with a seating area inside during the day. Its main auditorium has a maximum capacity of around 500 and it has hosted various bands such as Buzzcocks, The Damned, Stiff Little Fingers and The Subways.

As well as bands, the Drill Hall hosts theatre, literature talks, films, classical music, the Red Herring Comedy Club among other comedy nights, workshops, business meetings and the Lincoln Beer Festival every year.
