Pop-up shooting range comes Home to Lincoln

Food and fun for small groups

A new pop-up simulation shooting range has opened at Home nightclub in Lincoln, with technology used by police and the military in USA and replicas of real guns.

Quickdraw was due to launch in the former home of Ruddocks on Lincoln High Street in September 2020 as part of the Carousel concept operated by Lindum Leisure, which has links to a group of businesses including Home, Curiosity Shop and Craft. Lindum Leisure is leasing the building from Ruddocks.

Coronavirus delayed those plans, but workers are now on site with Carousel now due to open in early 2021, but in the meantime people can enjoy a pop-up version of Quickdraw in Home’s recently transformed Loft room with a soft launch from 5pm on Saturday, October 31 and an official opening on November 6.
