Most Lincoln Book Festival events take place at The Collection museum and art gallery on Danes Terrace or the Lincoln Drill Hall theatre on Freeschool Lane, close to Lincoln’s historic cultural quarter. Refreshments are available at all Lincoln Book Festival author events. Waterstones and Lindum Books provide bookstalls for visitors to purchase signed copies of featured titles.
The Collection is an award-winning archaeology museum and art gallery. Its main hall tells the story of Lincolnshire’s history from prehistoric times through to the present day through entertaining and engaging displays. The museum also holds a varied programme of exhibitions through the year. Festival events are held in the venue’s intimate 115-seat auditorium.
The Lincoln Drill Hall is a thriving arts and community venue offering a packed programme of live theatre, comedy, music, dance, guest talks, family events, classes and workshops. It was built in 1890 and derives its name from its use in the early 20th Century as a military training hall. It was home to the 4th Battalion of the Lincolnshire Regiment. It reopened in its current form in 2004 following a major restoration and now boasts a fully equipped 370-seat auditorium.
