Venue phone: 01778 423579
Box Office: 01476 406158
The Corn Exchange dates back to 1870 and was built on the site of the old post office on Abbey Road. The original building was designed as a public hall and corn exchange which was held in the large main hall with a stage and retiring rooms. Today the Corn Exchange has received a completely new facelift. The new South Kesteven Community Access Point was opened at the Corn Exchange in 2013 bringing all town, district and county council services under one roof together with the public library from South Street and the Registry Office from West Street. The main hall continues to be used as a major venue for social occasions ranging from dinner dances, meetings of local community groups, regular productions by the local amateur dramatic societies, music concerts and other stage entertainment.
Although we call ourselves an abbey, (formerly known as Croyland Abbey), we are actually the parish church of Crowland.
Details of events nay be found on our website.

Unlike many ancient cathedrals, Lincoln has no historic endowment to support its choir and organ music.
In 1993 the Lincoln Cathedral Music Fund (Reg Charity No 1033089) was set up to help preserve Lincoln's excellent music tradition.
The annual cost of running and maintaining the instruments is considerable, but with the support that is received from those who love the music of the Cathedral, from various Trusts and with the hard work and dedication of our Music Fund volunteers in creating and running events, funds are raised to help keep the music alive in the Cathedral.
