Welcome to POP OUT Festival 2019 — 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 Friday 27 September through to Monday 7 October, with even more events taking place out in the community: from the city streets, retail spaces, and a shipping container!

We’re particularly looking forward to our circus-weekender ( 28 & 29 Sept), which will see High Street and Cornhill hosting visually stunning contemporary circus, which is absolutely free and truly epic in scale.

A key value of PopOut is openness and with that we have a made a point with this year’s festival to place a core strand of community-led programming at the heart of our schedule. Featuring local artists, showcases of performance made in the city, participatory activities and a popup shop in St. Marks infused with a spirit of usefulness.

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!
