Postman Pat and Alexei Sayle in exciting line-up
In a year the venue celebrates its fifth anniversary, Lincoln Performing Arts Centre is commemorating a series of changes to coincide with the launch of an autumn/winter season, including a long-awaited box office.
Artistic director Craig Morrow says: "It's always been one of the things we wanted and has been raised as an issue, but now we finally have an in-house box office.
"We can now sell tickets online 24-7 and through the box office Monday to Saturday, 10am to 6pm, and after shows. Also because we have been able to take the box office in-house there are now no supplementary charges on tickets, just postage if required.
"We decided to launch a new website at the same time – it seemed like ideal timing. In a way these changes mark a bit of a re-launch for the venue and it also celebrates our fifth anniversary this year."

All the changes accompany a new season announced for Lincoln Performing Arts Centre as well. As ever, family shows, student theatre company productions, touring productions and some big name draws are all in the mix.
"We always have family shows for kids," says Craig. "And I am very excited Postman Pat is coming. A few weeks later we also have Cerrie Burnell from CBeebies with The Magical Playroom.
"I'm also really looking forward to Twelfth Night because it's coming here in association with the Royal Shakespeare Company so it's great that we could get this show and we have it on for two nights.
"We are also involved in the Frequency Festival and are hosting the Devoted and Disgruntled Roadshow for the whole of the East Midlands, which Lincoln Drill Hall hosted last year. It's a chance for everyone who loves theatre to come in and get plied with tea and coffee and talk about the state of the arts and things they would like to see changed.
The Lincoln Company, which comprises students past, present and future from the University of Lincoln, has a notable presence in the programme as ever.
Craig adds: "A show entitled Sheriff Wayne and the Sundance Cave, which is currently in Edinburgh for the festival and has received five stars in the last few weeks, will return and be performed here. Rebecca Mann and Stuart Scott have produced it all themselves and have received such a wonderful response in Edinburgh."
Other highlights include London Classic Theatre visiting with the Harold Pinter play Betrayal and a gig from Alexei Sayle, heading to the venue with his first full length stand-up show in 17 years.
