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.

In collaboration with Arts On Tour we present this solo play starring Helen Moulder. A delightful, modern, magical mystery with music from Mozart's the Magic Flute.  Gloria, aged 97, is being pushed to move into a "retireville" but she has other ideas.  On a whim, Gloria buys an extraordinary designer handbag.  This sets off a series of unusual events that completely transform her remaining days.
