Lincoln Drill Hall, Lincoln, Lincolnshire

Modern and refurbished throughout, the Lincoln Drill Hall is a popular entertainment venue in the historic City of Lincoln.

Its main auditorium has a maximum capacity of 500 seats and it has hosted various bands. As well as live music, the venue offers theatre, literature talks, films, the Lincoln Beer Festival, classical music, the Red Herring Comedy Club among other comedy nights, workshops and business meetings.

Historically, the building was a Volunteer Drill Hall, designed by architects Goddard and Son, and presented to the Lincoln Volunteers, in the later years of the 19th century. Purpose built as a military and police training hall, it hosted community and social events.

It was closed in 1999, but after public demand was reopened four years later following a £2.6m refurbishment programme and is now managed by the Ruston Hall Trust, a subsidiary charity of the Lincoln Arts Trust.

The Rolling Stones, in one of their earliest gigs, played the Drill Hall on New Year's Eve, 1963.
