We've teamed up with New Forest Ice Cream to celebrate our 40th birthday by offering visitors to Lighthouse the chance to win prizes throughout the year.

40 tubs of delicious ice cream on sale at Lighthouse will carry a golden ‘winners’ sticker, entitling the purchaser to a free 500ml tub of ice cream which will be delivered direct to their door by New Forest Ice Cream.  In addition, some stickers will unlock additional ‘spot prizes’ from Lighthouse including vouchers, merchandise and money can’t buy experiences.

The promotion is the latest in a packed programme of birthday events for Lighthouse, the UK’s largest regional arts centre, which first opened its doors to the public on 1st April 1978.

Sara St George, Head of Sales & Marketing for Lighthouse said, “We’re delighted to be working with New Forest Ice Cream, our longest-standing supplier on this very special promotion for our customers. With Lighthouse celebrating its 40th birthday this year and New Forest Ice Cream its 35th it seemed a fitting time to get our heads together and celebrate our long and successful partnership.”

Founded in 1983 by Lawrie and Sue Jenman, New Forest Ice Cream is a successful family business dedicated to producing top quality, great tasting and award-winning ice cream. Following their retirement three years ago Lawrie and Sue handed over the running of the business to their daughters, twins Niki Jenman and Christina Veal, and the company has continued to go from strength to strength at its Lymington production facility.

“We are extremely proud to be the longest standing supplier to Lighthouse and we were delighted to be asked to help them celebrate their 40th birthday both as a cherished and valued customer but equally so as one of the south’s leading arts venues,” said Niki and Christina.

For your chance to win with Lighthouse and New Forest Ice Cream, make sure you purchase a tub of ice cream on your next visit to Lighthouse – and remember to check the bottom for a winning sticker!
