About the Venue in Lincoln

The Venue is a great place to enjoy the best in entertainment. Set in the heart of uphill Lincoln, just 10 minutes walk from the historic Bailgate, The Venue nestles on the campus of Bishop Grosseteste University.

Used primarily as a Drama and Performing Arts theatre by the BG students during the daytime, The Venue has been completely refurbished and now also boasts modern digital projection equipment and Dolby surround sound enabling anyone to book tickets to see some fantastic films. The Venue is also equipped with satellite receivers enabling us to occasionally screen some of the great theatre, opera and music productions live, from around the world.

The Venue would like to acknowledge the support of the Lincoln Film Society for their contribution by way of provision of a new screen

A number of BG student societies also put on regular theatrical performances, and a number of outside organisations also hire the theatre for their own productions.
