Excellence and integrity
The work we create and present will be of a high standard in all aspects of its delivery, from the artists we chose, our production values and how we deliver our business. We aim for a world class standard and this will mean declining to promote work which is not consistent with our mission.

A high quality, sustainable, creative environment
We will create the best possible physical environment for the creation, presentation, participation and enjoyment of the arts; one that is accessible and sustainable. Lighthouse is committed to taking the lead as an employer acting in reducing our negative environmental impact.

A great place to work, create and participate
We are a welcoming, friendly, accessible and inspiring destination for artists, our audiences, and our community.   We will deliver a high quality experience, continually surprising and exciting everyone who engages with us with a vibrant, unique, diverse offer.  We will ensure a customer focus in everything we do for internal customers, businesses, the artistic and cultural community and the broader community.  We recognise out staff and artists are a core asset in delivering this. 

Children and Young People
Inspiring and engaging children and young people is focus for us and we do so by offering opportunities for formal and informal learning through participation, performance, seeing and hearing work and embracing new ideas.  We are a family friendly organisation and this principal is extended to all aspects of our business.

Learning and Participation (L&P)
We place learning at the core of what we do for all ages and abilities. L&P is an integral part of the delivery of Lighthouse’s ambitions both in terms of cultural learning, skills development, audience development and engagement with the wider community. We value a strong sense of community and community spirit and our programme and facilities provide opportunity for many local and regional community groups. 

Inclusivity and diversity
We embrace individuality and diversity of cultures and aim to be accessible for audiences and the whole community. We believe that the power of creativity embraces all cultures, social backgrounds and beliefs and that bringing together different groups in our region will make a positive change in our community.  We will celebrate talent and differences with a programme that is wide, diverse from artists representing the diversity of the UK who offer a broad cultural provision. We will reflect diversity in our staff, volunteers, and board and create a sense of inclusion among audiences, staff, volunteers and board.
