After Dark at the Castle – Information

30 October, 2015

Thank you for purchasing tickets for ‘After dark at the Castle.’  We’ve been asked by Lincoln Castle to pass on a few bits of vital information about the event…

When to arrive

All visitors can enter from the east gate of the Castle, (on Castle Hill,) opposite the Cathedral from 7pm. The show is split into two parts and last approximately 30 minutes and it’s repeated 4 times each night, so visitors can arrive at any time between 7pm and 8.30pm and see a full rotation of the show, with the Castle closing at 9pm. Last admission at 8.30pm.

Collecting pre-paid tickets

You can collect your tickets from Lincoln Drill Hall Box Office at the following times:

Tickets for Fri 30th can be collected up until 3pm on Fri 30th.

Tickets for Sat 31st can be collected up until 3pm on Sat 31st.

Thereafter any uncollected tickets will be taken to the Castle for your collection on the gate. Please bring any confirmation emails or order details with you, along with some form of ID.

Where do we sit?

This is not a seated event – the show is split into two parts and involves visitors moving across the site. Each rotation of shows is approximately 30 mins. Visitors can stay as long or as little as they like and the event is standing. There is a wheelchair user viewing position for the second part of the show.

Can I bring my dog?

No we’re sorry but no dogs (apart from assistance dogs) will be admitted.

Can I bring my own refreshments?

Yes absolutely, but please make sure any drinks are in plastic bottles – no glass will be permitted. The cafe and castle shop will be open throughout.

What if it rains?

This being England, the weather may be showery but please don’t bring large golf umbrellas. Waterproof clothing is advisable and if you want to bring smaller umbrellas that’s fine of course, but please be mindful of other audience members – for viewing purposes, stewards may ask those who use brollies to move to the back of the audience and only those without brollies to the front. The concert will go ahead whatever the weather.

Can I buy more tickets on the night?

If there any tickets available they’ll be sold at the gate from 6.30pm, however the gate’s likely to be very busy so to avoid disappointment it’s advisable to pre-book on our website or contact our box office on 01522 873894. We’ll be taking in person/phone sales until 3pm on Friday for that night, and up until 3pm on Saturday (person/phone sales) for that night. Online sales have now stopped.

If you have any further questions then please don’t hesitate to contact us on 01522 873894 or at

Thank you for your co-operation and we hope you enjoy the show.
