Lighthouse Friends has its 100th member!

Caroline Izod joined the recently launched membership scheme at Lighthouse, Poole’s centre for the arts, so that she could be certain of priority booking on popular shows, such as her son’s favourite radio comedy Dead Ringers.

“Lighthouse is a great venue and we really like it,” she said. “But having missed out on a couple of the most popular shows in recent months I decided to join Lighthouse Friends. The benefits ensure it is good value, but it also means we can help Lighthouse in its community work.”

To celebrate the landmark Lighthouse presented Christine with a special hamper of Dorset goodies from The Beacon eatery.

Lighthouse Friends are already making a vital difference in helping create opportunities for everyone to participate in the arts.

In return for their support Lighthouse Friends enjoy some great benefits including no booking fee on all shows and films, early mailing of the What’s On Guide, a quarterly newsletter and 10% discount at Lighthouse bars and the Beacon Café, plus:

Good Friends (£35). An invite to an annual Friends’ event; priority booking on selected shows.

Great Friends (£120). An invite to two Friends’ events with a guest; priority booking on selected shows; a thank you on Lighthouse website (optional).

Best Friends (£500). A personal ticket booking service; an invite for two to the Chief Executive’s annual lunch; an invite to two Friends’ events with a guest; priority booking on selected shows; a thank you on Lighthouse website (optional).
