First Lockdown Live Session brings the party to social distancing Lincoln

Local DJs, producers and creative companies came together to bring the club to Lincoln homes and beyond as entertainment venues across the UK have been shut down over the coronavirus pandemic and people are advised to stay indoors.

In less than 24 hours from the government telling all entertainment and leisure venues to close, The Lincolnite, Firmative Media with Gemma Harrison, and DJs Ben Webb, Cobie, Stranger and Danny Kewley organised a four-hour stay at home party session streamed live to the people of Lincoln on Saturday night.

And fun it was! Watch again the live stream below featuring house, disco, R&B and hip hop music for your entertainment.
