Where in Lincoln can you ‘ask for Angela’?

Ever felt that a first date was going awry or you were in an unsafe position? Thanks to a campaign set up in Lincoln almost a year ago, there is a discreet way to ask for help.

A number of businesses in the nightlife industry have now formally signed up to the scheme, which has been rolled out across the UK, making it easier for people to recognise the safety line.

It works by encouraging anyone who feels uncomfortable or unsafe to ask venue staff for “Angela”. Workers can then help them leave discreetly or call them a taxi.

Below is a list of pubs, bars and clubs currently supporting #NoMore and the Ask for Angela scheme in Lincoln:

  • Kind Bar
  • Slug and Lettuce
  • Circle
  • Trebles
  • The Ritz Wetherspoon
  • Fever and Boutique
  • Walkabout
  • Vice and Co
  • Huckleberrys
  • William Foster
  • Mailbox
  • The Still
  • Rogue Saint
  • Red 5
  • Riley’s
  • Treaty of Commerce
  • The Scene
  • Krystals
  • Royal William IV
  • Strait and Narrow
  • Horse and Groom
  • Witch and Wardrobe
  • The Anchor
  • Bierkeller
  • Cardinal’s Hat
  • Dog and Bone

Venues signed up to the scheme display posters and window stickers within their buildings to promote it.

The campaign is the brainchild of Lincolnshire County Council in association with the #NoMore campaign.

It was named after Norfolk woman Angela Crompton, who was tragically murdered at the hands of her abusive husband.

Friend Hayley Child, who is also Substance Misuse and Sexual Violence & Abuse Strategy Coordinator at the county council, came up with the idea.
