The Gliderdrome was built in the early 1960’s as a dance hall and live entertainment venue. It hosted the biggest names in the music industry from Elton John, Stevie Wonder, Otis Redding and T.Rex to name just a few.
There are not many dance halls like The Gliderdrome still in existence today.
The big stage, the big dance floor, it's all just as it was back in the 60’s.
It is a truly iconic place. You can feel the nostalgia from those heady days of the 60’s and 70’s.
For people who are not keen on dancing all night there’s a balcony around 3 sides of the room that will seat well over 200 people. From the balcony you get a really good view of the stage and dance floor, where you can sit and have a drink from our licenced bars and watch the brilliant live entertainment.
If you’ve never been to the Gliderdrome please come along and soak up the same atmosphere that so many people experienced all those years ago.
We are putting on shows/dances once a month with top class entertainment and you will not find better value anywhere in Lincolnshire.
The Gliderdrome is NOT a night club, it's a DANCE HALL. Seating for over 1000 people and a HUGE dance floor. Live entertainment and disco. Themed nights eg: Motown & Soul, 60's night, Northen Soul night. etc.......
This has got to be the ultimate soul night out with NOT ONE, BUT TWO of the country's top soul bands playing.

Jimmy James & Vagabonds
Jimmy James (born Michael James, 13 September 1940, Jamaica)Jimmy James is a soul music singer, known for songs like Come To Me Softly, Now Is the Time and I'll Go Where the Music Takes Me. Not forgetting his classic A Man Like Me
The Vagabonds were originally formed in 1960. Later, James, already a successful solo artist in Jamaica, teamed up with them and in April 1964, they relocated to the UK. "Ska Time" (Decca Records) was recorded within two weeks of their arrival, and is one of the first examples of Jamaican ska music to be recorded in the UK. In 1965 they undertook more gigs and recordings in Hungary, organised as part of a cultural exchange programme, with The Vagabonds being one of the few Western European bands ever to play in the former communist state. Also in 1965, Jimmy James and the Vagabonds supported The Who at the Marquee Club in London.
They signed a recording contract with Pye Records and released their best known studio album, The New Religion in 1966. The band also played as support for The Who, and Sonny & Cher, Rod Stewart (who was also on Pye Records at the time), and The Rolling Stones. The band often used the Abbey Road Studios, once being there at the same time as The Beatles were recording. Their live performance was captured in the album, Live at the Marquee, also featuring The Alan Bown Set. Jimmy James and the Vagabonds were labelmates and rivals of Geno Washington & The Ram Jam Band.
