Attraction details
Owner description: Lincoln's friendliest, liveliest arts venue, packed full of the very best in theatre, comedy, musical theatre, pantomime, music, film, children's events, literature, dance... and much much more! We are open 9-5 Monday to Saturday and offer food and drink (and sometimes free live music) in our Cafe Bar between 9:30 and 4:30. The bar is also open for business when events are on in the evenings.

We've been to several shows and never been disappointed. We have taken our grandchildren and great grandsons to shows and they have thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

Thank David J

This is a great venue, small but attracting some big names and the staff could not be more helpful. The Cafe Bar is also a lovely place to just relax, listen to local musicians and enjoy reasonably priced food and drink - who doesn't love the thought of cake at a comedy gig! I've been here numerous times before and the most recent being for Kevin Bridges, a busy night but once again the service was second to none.
NCP car park next door (ouch to those prices) but a couple of multi storey carparks in walking distance.

Thank Michelle D

Thank you for your brilliant review! We all loved reading your kind words. We are really proud of getting such big names to the Drill Hall and pleased to punch above our weight. Cake at a comedy gig is also an excellent idea!

We look forward to welcoming you back to the Drill Hall very soon :)

I had a genuinely lovely morning in the Cafe Bar listening to Ishani & Hilary's music while I drank my hot chocolate. The live jazz vocals and pianist was wonderful in the background, which set a very relaxing atmosphere for everyone. Even though I didn't know many of the songs, they were beautifully played and sung and I loved their cover of Cry Me A River. There were people eating and chatting away but they always clapped when the song finished, which showed everyone enjoyed the music too. There was a little one enjoying the toy area which just proves the drill hall accommodates for a variety of ages. And the staff were friendly and polite too. I would highly recommend all to pop in for a bite to eat and listen to the variety of live music that is provided on Saturdays!
