At Lighthouse, we believe passionately in the life-enhancing power of the arts and our mission is to share that with those around us.

By providing a wide-ranging programme of live arts experiences; by nurturing and developing emerging talent and by offering new and exciting opportunities for participation, we aim to reach everyone in the community around us-whatever their age, whatever their background, whatever their ability.

We can’t do this on our own so if you, too, have a heart for enriching lives through the arts, please come and join us. As a registered charity, we depend upon the generosity of the individuals, companies and trusts who choose to help us. Your contribution-large or small-really can change lives.

It's impossible to imagine Poole without Lighthouse; it's just such an odd thought. If Lighthouse wasn't there it would seriously restrict the work we are able to do with students, not only in terms of Theatre Studies, but other cultural activities as well. Lighthouse is a central part of what we do, it's incredibly important
