A music-packed March at Southside

Lincoln’s newest live music venue Southside has announced a packed schedule of events throughout March, including St Patrick’s Day celebrations and a performance from the University of Lincoln’s choir.

Southside, formerly St Katherine’s Church and the Priory Centre, is focused on bringing a variety of music, activities and events to the city.

After opening in autumn of last year, Southside has been hosting popular weekly events and has now announced its events line-up for March.

“We’re really excited to announce everything that’s coming up here at Southside in March,” said Emily Nichol, Operations Director at the venue.

“We’re hosting some new events this month, showcasing local talent and hopefully providing something everyone will enjoy. We’re also continuing to host some of our popular events such as Commuter Jazz and we are very grateful for all the support we have received so far.”

The venue is holding an International Women’s Day concert on Wednesday 8th March. The all-female lineup for the event includes Hannah Rowe, Tinned Peaches and Who’s Misty?. The evening will be hosted by Katy Baggott from LCR FM’s The Sunday Underbelly. All proceeds will be donated to Lincolnshire Rape Crisis, which works to support people who have been affected by any form of sexual violence.

Celebrate St Patrick’s Day weekend at Southside on Saturday 18th March with a performance from Lincoln’s Castile Céilidh Band. The event will take place in Southside’s Amie Slavin Hall and will be similar to a traditional Irish Céili with Irish folk music, traditional dancing and storytelling.

Tickets for Southside’s St Patrick’s Day Céili can be purchased on online via its website. There is also the option to buy a ticket with food included and the menu will be announced soon. Southside has recently received a five-star food hygiene rating.

Throughout March Southside will also be hosting a number of concerts. On Saturday 11th March, local singer/songwriter Ben Simmons will be taking to the stage with special guest Georgie Hanson. On Thursday 30th March the University of Lincoln Choir will be performing alongside a folk band as part of the university’s Chamber Ensemble showcase.

Alongside these new events, Southside will continue to host its popular recurring events including Folk Night, Snug Sessions and Commuter Jazz.
