Sincil Bank stadium opening as public space during lockdown

The first session is this week

Lincoln City will open its Sincil Bank stadium later this week to create a public space where people can unwind and ‘Take A Break’ during the coronavirus lockdown period.

The first session will be held between 11am-2pm on Friday, June 5 for people to bring their lunch, read a book, listen to music or simply relax in the surroundings of the Imps’ home.

Staff will be on hand to guide people during the sessions at the LNER Stadium and further dates will be announced in due course.

Admittance will only be via allocated time slots. A maximum of two people can be admitted per booking in line with government guidelines and advance booking is mandatory.
