New Theatre Royal Lincoln chosen to host East Midlands BBC Children in Need event

New Theatre Royal Lincoln has this year been chosen to host the BBC Children in Need event for the East Midlands – which will be aired live next month.

Taking place on November 16 from 7pm, the evening will include humour and live entertainment with all revenues raised on the night going directly to Children in Need.

There will be a few familiar faces from BBC Radio Lincolnshire, local schools children’s choir and a celebrity panel of judges, with live link ups through the evening to the regional and national Children In need show.

A spokesperson for the New Theatre Royal said: “We welcome lots of stars through the New Theatre Royal Lincoln doors, but it’s not every day you meet Pudsey!

“‘Delighted’ is an understatement to be chosen as the venue for this year’s East Midlands event, aired LIVE on BBC on November 16.

“All proceeds from the night will be for Children in Need 2018.”

Tickets are currently on sale for the event for £6 (+£1 booking fee) for adults and £5 (+£1 booking fee) for concessions. Click or tap here to get your tickets.
