Come and say hi to our friendly pop-up box office and information team and find out the latest listings of what’s on at Waterside, Pop Out Festival and Lincoln Performing Arts Centre.


All events are free. You can just turn up but tickets are issued on a first-come-first serve and some events have limited capacity so try to book in advance if you can via the box office.
