Brick or treat! Lincoln Drill Hall conjures up packed autumn programme

Tickets are now available for dozens of innovative performances


has revealed its popular autumn programme, packed with unique shows and performances from up-and-coming talent and household names, including Jason Byrne, Mark Watson and Griff Rhys Jones.


The season gets underway as the charity-run arts centre is aiming to raise £130,000 after a series of reductions in public funding.


Visitors and supporters can ‘Be a Brick’ and ‘buy a brick’ on a colourful virtual wall to show their support for £10 or £50 per year. So far, more than 1,200 bricks have been purchased and, with the support of several crucial grants, the total raised so far stands at over £82,000.


This autumn, the venue will host a season of unique and varied events, beginning in early September, including music and comedy performances, inspiring talks, theatre for kids and great nights out.


The Drill Hall’s innovative Pay What You Decide scheme will be in place for a range of performances to encourage audiences to book a ticket for free, watch the show and donate how much money they thought it was worth.


Chris Kirkwood, CEO at Lincoln Drill Hall, said:


“Autumn is the perfect time to re-energise after a busy summer, but as we get closer to Halloween, it’s important to remind people that we still need their support by saying ‘Brick or Treat’! There are no tricks keeping Lincoln Drill Hall going; just a lot of ‘bricks’, that is to say; people who are pledging their support to keep a wide range of fantastic shows, arts and community events in the heart of Lincoln. 


“There’s nothing better than getting out to try something new as say goodbye to summer and settle back into our routines, so we’re pleased to announce a really varied autumn programme that has a bit of something for everyone. 


“We’ve had a lot of success with Pay What You Decide since we introduced the scheme in 2018, and we hope that it will continue to encourage audiences to take a chance on a show they might not normally see. This scheme means that you have nothing to lose and everything to gain. We hope this will encourage more people to explore something they might love and it will support some really innovative performers. 


“From great nights out to hilarious comedy performances, the coming months are really varied and exciting so we’d encourage anyone looking to indulge in a bit of laughter, singing and dancing to book tickets soon!”
