docks academy voted amongst best music venues in the uk & europe!

Let’s start off by saying a massive thank you to the readers of the Guardian, who voted us as one of the ten best music venues in Europe and the UK!

Despite only opening in 2020, we are ecstatic to see that our gigs and venue are going down well with our attendees. It’s the praise and support like this that truly helps us as we try to bring a diverse programme of events to Lincolnshire. This is only the start but there’s so much more planned, and we can’t wait to see these come to fruition and share this soon…

After his first show sold out, we’ve added a second (almost sold out) show for comedian Carl Hutchinson on Saturday 3rd September.

Carl Hutchinson started stand-up comedy one year into his mathematics degree at Newcastle University and quickly became a multi-award-winning comedian. A former winner of the Beat the Frog World Series competition and Magners Pub Comedian of the Year, expect stories, observations, and audience interaction.

It’s always an exciting night with Carl – so join this dynamic and versatile performer for a truly unmissable evening of comedy at the Church.
