It's time for another short interval...

Lighthouse is now closed until the end of February

Sadly, but for all the right reasons, we have hit the pause button again on live performances and our film programme and are working with artists and promotors to reschedule shows for later in the year. If you have tickets booked during this time, rest assured our team will be in touch as soon as possible.

Despite this latest setback we look ahead with hope to a busy and creative 2021 - we have lots of great things planned that we can't wait to share with you. Meanwhile, let's look forward to being together again when it is safe to do so.

Our Ticket Office phone line is open from 10-2 Monday - Friday

The ticketoffice@lighthousepoole.co.uk  email is also being monitored.

We are a really small team so would request that customers only call if absolutely necessary or if we have left you a message to get in touch.   We will be in touch with everyone, it may just take a little time. 

With determination, a can-do approach and our usual showbiz gusto we have lots planned for 2021.   In the meantime there is plenty still happening behind closed doors.  Sign up to our mailing list to stay up to date or check out  our website and social media. 

Emergency funding from Arts Council England and donations from many of you has provided a vital lifeline to support us to open our doors again and we have been overwhelmed with the generosity of so many people. The hard work doesn't end here. As a charity, we will always need your support to continue our work and to enhance the lives of so many people across our community. You've helped us survive, and now together, it's time for us to thrive. Find out more here: https://www.lighthousepoole.co.uk/support-lighthouse/

We'll see you again very soon. 




It was our first time in a cinema since Lockdown began in March , it was a totally positive experience, the spacing and the care taken over safety made us feel completely safe . Wearing masks was not uncomfortable and contributed to the feeling of consideration and respect from and towards the rest of the small audience . Our Lunch beforehand in the Beacon was carefully planned and thought out .. as well as being tasty and good value . We couldn't fault the thought and effort taken .

LH Customer

We’ve been planning extensively for our reopening and have been working hard to implement wide-reaching new safety measures across all venues. Whilst your visit may feel a little different we’re focusing on key areas to ensure you, your family and friends, along with our teams, can enjoy your visit as safely as possible.

To recognise the measures we have put in place to make Lighthouse safe and welcoming we are proud to hold the ‘We’re Good to Go’ industry standard mark. Here is what to expect:

ONLINE BOOKINGS
Booking online is encouraged, making your visit to Lighthouse as contactless as possible. 

BOOK AHEAD
We would encourage all customers to book in advance to help maintain the correct social distancing measures.  Capacity is signifcantly reduced with tickets likely to sell out in advance.

FOOD AND DRINK
Please wait to be seated and complete the Track and Trace information to be placed in the box provided. These details will be retained for 21 days. Full table service will be provided and we have spaced out seats and tables to ensure social distancing can be maintained.

VENTILATION
Our café, foyer and performance spaces are ventilated using fresh air drawn in from the outside. Air is not recycled

ADDITIONAL CLEANING
Our already high cleaning standards will be enhanced by a new cleaning protocol covering all areas of the building. Our cleaning team will be constantly disinfecting all areas of the building throughout the day and evening to help keep you safe. All our venue seating, foyers and carpets will undergo a weekly ‘fogging’ treatment to quickly and effectively disinfect surfaces and surroundings, providing protection for up to 30 days.

FACE COVERINGS
Please protect yourself and those around you, thank you for wearing a face covering.

SOCIAL DISTANCING 
A little space goes a long way. Please stay safe and keep your distance.

Clean hands are safer hands.  Please wash your hands and use our santisers
