After two years the Butterfly Club returns to Lincoln’s historic Drill Hall.  The popular disco night for those with with learning and physical disabilities has been without a home since the pandemic, but with the venue’s refurbishment and new ownership under Lincoln College Group, this vital opportunity to socialise in a safe and welcoming space has returned.

The first of the return dates on 2 March saw over 150 people visit the venue for a dance and a catch up – for some it was the first time to be in the same room together since 2020. We were joined by Gemma Dawson from BBC Look North to celebrate the return of the Butterfly Club and were delighted to feature in a segment later that week.

The Butterfly Club returns for its next outing on 6 April!
