3 theatre technicians and a duty manager from Lincoln Drill Hall will be putting their best foot forward to attempt the National Three Peaks challenge on August the 30th 2019. The team will be raising money for the arts venue, hoping to generate awareness about the financial difficulties it’s facing.
Lincoln Drill Hall’s been at the heart of our community for well over a century, entertaining the generations and providing a space to socialise. However, funding cuts mean there’s a risk we might not be able to keep the doors open.
Lincoln’s incredibly lucky to have a range of great venues however, none offers the wealth of community focused activity that Lincoln Drill Hall does. You see, it’s not just the performances on stage that’d be lost.
• We’d lose our Butterfly Club, built up over years to offer 1500 disabled adults a monthly place to meet in a friendly welcoming environment.
• We’d lose our Happy Mondays sessions for toddlers and pre-school children that can be so vital to their development.
• Our range of daytime programming that gives older audiences access to social and artistic connections would go, and our Youth Theatres, for toddlers, teens and those with disabilities would be lost.
• There’d be no more work with other charities such as the YMCA, and our partnership with groups like Compassionate Lincoln would also come to an end.
In short, The Drill Hall is more than just the shows on the stage, and it is all of that activity that is at risk.
So please, dig deep and sponsor our intrepid 'Lincoln Drill Hall Peaky Blinders' so that we can raise enough to keep this iconic community venue alive for generations to come!
