Reimagining Greyfriars will be an pioneering project for inclusivity and access for all, taking place within a centuries-old iconic building, in the heart of Lincoln. The repurposed venue will bring to life the 900 years of history through creative interpretation, alongside a dynamic and vibrant programme of new activities.
The City of Lincoln Council, working in partnership with Heritage Lincolnshire, have joined together to help find new and exciting uses for Greyfriars, with a comprehensive program of conservation and refurbishment. The building has been vacant for several years now and is noted as being ‘at risk’, requiring immediate attention. Initial development funding has been awarded to the Council from the National Lottery Heritage Fund. The overall vision is to create a sustainable and viable multi-use venue that includes a café, a flexible event space and a heritage interpretation area to help contribute to the economic health of the surrounding area, whilst saving an important part of Lincoln’s rich heritage.
