The Engine Shed


The Engine Shed

The Engine Shed, opened in 2006, is the largest live music and entertainment facility in Lincoln.

The building was originally constructed in 1875 for the Great Northern Railway (GNR) as Shed 40A, with four railway tracks. It had been disused since 1964.

The building is at the eastern end of the university campus, and is near the point where the River Witham joins Brayford Pool (Foss Dyke) from the south.

The Engine Shed hosts our two big music evenings: The United States of Steampunk (where The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing are headlining) and The Time Travellers (Steam Powered Giraffe’s UK debut)
