Behind the scenes, in every nook and cranny of the Lighthouse there are classes, workshops and the opportunity to learn. Join us on Training Tuesday to find a class that suits you best. Watching is fun, participating is better.

Schools

Lighthouse launched its first ever partnership schools programme in April 2017. Eight schools have become official partners for the next academic year. The new programme marks the realisation of a long-held ambition for Lighthouse to reach out to specific sections of the community.

The partnership sees each partner school committing to bring students to see live performance at Lighthouse, and be champions for the arts within their communitie. They have shown a commitment to cultural education for children and will give Lighthouse ongoing help developing and refining its outreach programme for the whole community.”

In return, partner schools will be invited to see behind the scenes backstage, get priority access to outreach workshops, receive careers talks from Lighthouse staff and access a range of additional exciting opportunities. Lighthouse will continue working with all schools that wish to engage and through these new partner schools will be championing our work, supporting their students, and we believe all sides will be enriched by the partnership.

Organisations

Lighthouse does not only deliver work it also hosts a variety of organisations who offer quality learning and participation opportunities.

  • Activate
  • Arts University Bournemouth
  • Borough of Poole
  • Bournemouth and Poole College
  • Bournemouth Symphony Chorus
  • Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra
  • Crying Out Loud
  • Dance Touring Partnership
  • Dorset Arts Trust (DAT)

This will open doors for our school community which may otherwise have remained closed. We are certain it will leave a lasting and powerful legacy on both the children and their families, whilst challenging the often misjudged perception of accessibility and inclusion for all within the Arts world. We can't wait to get started.
