Craig Morrow, The Drill’s theatre manager, said: “We’ve been talking a lot internally about what The Drill could do to help and we were aware that similar conversations were taking place over the city, so after a few conversations with local artists we felt that hosting a fundraising gig was a great way for the local creative community to respond to the awful events unfolding in Ukraine.

“We’re delighted to be working with The Drill’s owners Lincoln College, along with our friends at University of Lincoln and BGU to maximise the impact of our event.

“We’d encourage people to buy a ticket, come along and get involved in what’s set to be a great event, so that we can raise some much-needed cash to provide practical support, whilst showing Lincoln’s support for the citizens of the Ukraine.”
