Missing Lighthouse? Trust us: we are too. We know you’ve been waiting patiently for news on when you can return. We are excited and delighted to share with you that we open again to the public on Tuesday 15 September, six months to the day after closing in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. The initial reopening is very limited and restricted to the Cinema, the Beacon café, ticket office and some behind-closed-doors rehearsals, courses and classes. Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra is also expected to resume rehearsals in the Concert Hall.

The reaction of our ticket holders to our closure has really lifted our spirits over the last few months. Many have donated the cost of their ticket and we're truly grateful. THANK YOU.

Our September events have been rescheduled. A few performances are holding dates for late 2020 and 2021, until we know more about live events reopening.

All ticket holders are entitled to retain their ticket for a rescheduled date or in the case of a cancellation, for a refund. We are 
contacting ticket holders and ask for your patience while we do this. We have a great deal to take care of with a very small but dedicated team.

Please note some events are part of major UK tours and it is complex for  Promoters  to manage multiple date changes for an entire tour. We are holding future dates for these shows and will be in touch as soon as they are confirmed,

We are contacting customers between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday but have very limited cover so please bear with us. If you receive a phone call from us it will show with 'Caller ID blocked' as staff are working from home to do this. Our phone lines will remain closed until further notice and we will endeavour to respond to emails as soon as we can but this is taking longer that usual. Please be reassured we will be in touch.  Thank you for your understanding.

We are really looking forward to welcome you back to Lighthouse very soon.  Please stay safe and take care.

Please note:
If your event is postponed your ticket will be valid for the rescheduled date. If you are unable to attend the rescheduled date you will be able to obtain a refund of the ticket price within 14 days of the date of notification of the cancelled event.  In the event of a refund you will not be refunded the admin fee or the fulfilment fee. Lighthouse pays a charge per ticket to our software providers to cover the cost of the system and in the event of a refund we do not get this charge back. 
The following shows have been cancelled.  We have contacted ticket holders direct to let you know and to arrange a refund/credit note.
