Lighthouse offers a range of workshops, residencies and events that are available to young people, teachers, practitioners and those interested in connecting to their creative side. Run by resident or visiting companies and facilitated by Lighthouse, these workshops offer an excellent opportunity to connect with and learn from internationally renowned artists and specialists.

Upcoming opportunities that we are excited about:

Serious

We are thrilled to announce that, in partnership with Serious Music, we are leading a new outreach learning programme. The pilot stage of the programme will be delivered to two of our wonderful partner schools, Queen Elizabeth’s School and St Aldhelm’s Academy. These schools are passionately engaged with music education and are driven by fantastically motivated and enthusiastic teachers.

We are so pleased to be collaborating with Serious, who are a very exciting company. Serious specialise in producing world class events, running diverse learning and participation projects and are one of the leading promoters of Jazz and Contemporary music in the UK.

This project aims to actively engage young people to make and play music. Within the local area there is already lots of provision for music workshops that focus on classical and jazz music. Our ambition in this project is to inspire young creatives to explore other genres of music, particularly popular music. Lighthouse are keen to inspire, encourage and support the writing, playing and production of contemporary music by young people, for young people.

We will be running another strand of this project in autumn, so check back here soon for information about how to get involved!

Processions - email us to sign up!

As you may have already seen, Lighthouse are taking part in Processions, an exciting project connected to the centenary of women gaining the right to vote.

On 6 February 1918, the Representation of the People Act gave the first British women the right to vote. One hundred years on, 14-18 NOWArtichoke and hundreds of other arts organisations from around the country are inviting women to mark this moment by taking part in a major mass-participation artwork.

You can find out more about the project here or by following the dedicated Lighthouse Processions blog.
