Last summer, we opened the LNER Stadium gates to provide a public space for anyone to come and ‘Take A Break’. And due to popular demand, we are pleased to announce that ‘Take A Break’ is returning following the latest lifting of lockdown restrictions.
Bring your lunch, read a book, listen to your music or simply relax in the surroundings of the spiritual home of the Imps.
Advance booking is mandatory – see below for how to book. Entry is completely free however, you can donate to Lincoln City Foundation if you so wish via a bucket collection, who are working to support those in our local community who need help at this difficult time.
Of course, we want to make it as safe and easy as possible for you to book and enjoy your visit. The 'Take A Break' project will be strictly conducted under guidance set out to allow for time to be spent outdoors for recreation. Social distancing rules must be followed at all times and all visitors are reminded they should continue to follow the guidance as set out by the Government. You can view the latest Government guidelines by CLICKING HERE and we’ll have staff on hand to guide you and ensure your visit to the LNER Stadium is safe and enjoyable.
You can also view our Covid-19 Risk Assessment HERE.

Where can I park?
The Stacey West car park will be open for all visitors and parking is free. We would ask you to park responsibly respecting other car park users when you do so.
Where do I go when I arrive?
To help keep all staff and visitors safe, we’ve made some changes so if you’re a regular visitor to the stadium, your visit may be different to what you are used to.
A new perimeter fence has been installed at the entrance to the stadium – but all visitors can enter via the single pedestrian gate located at the perimeter fence.
Once inside, the designated arrival and entry point is outside Gate E2 (next to Selenity turnstiles 1-3) at the north-east corner of the stadium between the Selenity Stand and the Stacey West Stand.
Please arrive no earlier than 10 minutes before your allocated entry time. You will not be admitted before your entry time.
You will be greeted by a member of Club or Foundation staff. Please provide your name and booking email address upon arrival.
Please note that if you arrive late, your entry will be at the discretion of our staff. Please also note that if you do not provide evidence of your booking as requested, you may not be permitted entry.
Upon entry, you will be accompanied to an allocated seat within a designated zone inside the stadium, and from there you can stay as long as you like within the opening times.
During your visit
We would recommend you bring a drink, a bite to eat and other provisions which will enable you to enjoy your time spent outdoors at the LNER Stadium.
Please note there will be NO indoor facilities or toilets available.
To help keep everyone safe, please follow social distancing rules and government guidance when you visit. Movement from seat to seat will not be permitted.
Normal ground regulations do not apply.
