The reaction of our ticket holders to our closure really lifted our spirits over the last few months. Many have donated the cost of their ticket and we're truly grateful. THANK YOU.
Lighthouse earns more than 80% of its income from people coming to see shows and spending money on tickets, drinks and refreshments. That income was wiped out overnight when Lighthouse closed its doors on 17 March to help fight the spread of COVID-19.
Emergency funding from Arts Council England has provided a vital lifeline and local people have continued donating during lockdown, but with full audiences still unable to return the organisation has launched the Bridge The Gap campaign to support its on-going appeal to help it get through the current situation.
The request is simple – we’re asking our loyal supporters and customers to give what they can to help us survive the next few months and ‘bridge the gap’ to a better time when we can again welcome capacity houses in our performance spaces and help us bounce back stronger than ever.
