Poole Arts Trust Ltd invites tenders from suitably qualified and experienced catering companies for the opportunity to operate the food offer within Lighthouse, Poole’s Centre for the Arts.

In 2012, Lighthouse leased the food operation to enable the organisation to focus on the core aspects of the business – its arts and events programme. The term of that five year lease is now up for renewal and is open to all businesses with significant, demonstrable experience of managing a similar operation in a busy and changing environment.

The food offer is an important aspect of the Lighthouse visitor experience and provides both audiences and other customers with food and beverages both prior to a performance and throughout the day. It has benefited greatly from a recent £5.2m refurbishment of Lighthouse which saw the ground floor foyer redesigned and new glazing put in place to open out the centre to the public. These changes have seen a 10% increase in customer footfall over the same period for the previous year.
