Good Times

Events a Plenty

The Laboratory is here to stay and not just because of its considerable seismic strength. Martin and Lisa are dedicated community members with big eyes for the future of Lincoln. Whether it's supporting local events with the Mobile Laboratory or Food Truck, Monday night ticketed events from the Arts on Tour circuit, movie screenings or quiz nights - The Laboratory is keen supporter of the arts in Selwyn. The Classroom also provides the ability to offer classes or film viewings and accommodate meetings. A convenient, central location on the village green holds much promise, as well, for both collaboration and community events. In true Lincoln spirit, Lisa and Martin are encouraging members of the community to join them on this journey, from pub to community hub. Make yourself at home and become a part of the story.

7:00pm in the Classroom

Our last movie night for 2017, here's a change of pace from our last couple of screenings with Sunshine on Leith.  A jubilant, heartfelt musical about the power of home, the hearth, family and love.  It is the tale of one tight-knit family, and the three couples bound to it, as they experience the joys and heartache that punctuate all relationships. And they do it all while singing to the euphoric music of The Proclaimers!


Seats limited, tickets available at the bar.

Monday 11th September

Consummate performer Jan Bolwell plays her adolescent self, encouraging her grandfather Arthur to talk about the First World War. What follows is a gripping, painful and sometimes hilarious tale of a young Kiwi soldier from the Otago Mounted Rifles (one of Bill Massey’s tourists) and his survival from the tragedy of Passchendaele. It is a story that also features song and dance.

Doors open 5.30pm, performance starts 7.30pm

Tickets over the bar or call 325 3006
