About BG Venues

BG Venues is the trading name of BG (Lincoln) Ltd, the commercial company of Bishop Grosseteste University.

The origins of the University began in 1862 as a diocesan training school and although the name may have changed over the years, the college remained one of the top teacher training colleges in the country culminating with the granting of degree powers in 2006 and full university status in 2012.

Bishop Grosseteste University is named after Robert Grosseteste who was thought to have been born around 1170. Grosseteste was a greatly respected teacher, scientist and theologian who was consecrated Bishop of Lincoln 1235. During his lifetime he wrote many texts, including philosophical commentaries, prayers and scientific treaties. His tomb is in Lincoln Cathedral.
