When?           Wednesday 4 May 12pm-5pm

Where?          Lincoln Drill Hall

What?            Students from Lincoln University’s School of Fine and Performing Arts have created six site-specific performances inspired by the Lincoln Drill Hall and its history. Their research has uncovered narratives about soldiers who drilled here during the First World War, the man who built it, the site’s former life as a saw mill and its current use as a voting station. We remember the officers who used to meet in The Room Upstairs in a cloud of cigarette smoke and the tragic story of the young girl who died here during gym class in 1899.  Now take a tour with a difference around the building and follow the footsteps of those who came here before you. You are invited to experience these performances in unusual locations around the building and to encounter its hidden stories in an innovative and exciting way.

How?              The event is free. Arrive at any time between 12pm and 5pm to visit different performances and sign up for the one-to-one experiences.
