Why Support Lighthouse?

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.  

The difference you’ll make:

By supporting Lighthouse, you will be right at the heart of all we do. You will be helping us to bring new, exciting and entertaining work to Poole. You will be supporting us in our work with schools in the locality and enriching the lives of young people at such a crucial time in their lives. You will be part of our programme of bringing the life changing power of the Arts to everyone-whatever their age or their background


Because we are a charity, your support is vital if, together, we are to make a difference in our community. 

There are many ways in which you can support us. For instance, if you have enjoyed your time at Lighthouse; if you want to remember a loved one or if you just want to celebrate the joy of live performance, maybe you would like to name a seat in our theatre, cinema or concert hall.

If you’d like to talk to us about these things, or any other way of giving, please email info@lighthousepoole.co.uk or contact 01202 28 00 00. Whatever you are able to give or do, we will be immensely grateful-thank you!


if Lighthouse wasn’t there it would seriously restrict the work we’re able to do with students, not only in terms of Theatre Studies, but other cultural activities. Lighthouse is a central part of what we do; it’s incredibly important.
