Welcome to POP OUT Festival 2018 — Lincoln’s micro-festival of art outside the ordinary.

At POP OUT you can expect the best new plays, theatre, family and children’s shows, music, comedy and site-specific performance, all taking place in spaces outside of our venue.

The festival is a great opportunity to uncover hidden gems and try something different, you can even experience a little slice of the Edinburgh Festival with the return of the wonderful Roundabout, Paines Plough’s touring amphitheatre, visiting Lincoln fresh from the Fringe.

This year, the festival is even more ambitious, stretching from Saturday 29 September through to Saturday 13 October, with even more events taking place out in the community: from the city streets, retail spaces, a car park, Home nightclub and a shipping container!

We’re particularly looking forward to our circus-weekender (29 & 30 Sept), which will see High Street and Cornhill hosting visually stunning contemporary circus, which is absolutely free and truly epic in scale.

We’ll also be launching a pop-up mini arts centre at Lincoln Central Market, which is part of Lincoln Performing Arts Centre’s 10th Anniversary programme of community residencies and will feature workshops and performances right at the heart of the city.

We’re all very excited about this year’s programme and if you speak to anyone in the team at Lincoln Performing Arts Centre they’ll be able to tell you about What’s On in Lincoln and their personal pick-of-the-pop-out.

We hope to see you there!
