Due to continued Government restrictions Lighthouse will be closed for all public events and activities until the end of June. Use this page to check all our latest news, cancellations and rescheduled events

** Our Ticket Software provider  has updated the system to include a change to print at home tickets however this has caused an unexpected issue. A number of customers have been resent tickets for cancelled events as well as their other Print at Home tickets for future events. We apologise for this error and any confusion it may have caused.  This anomoly is being resolved and we thank you for your understanding**

All performances due to take place during closure are either cancelled or postponed. We are working hard to reschedule as many shows as possible but this is taking a bit of time. All ticket holders will be 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 during this uncertain time with a very small but  dedicated team.

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

We will keep the Ticket Office operational for as long as we are able to but we also need to look out for the welfare of our team who are significantly reduced in numner.  We are contacting customers between  9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday. 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. Please be reassured we will be in touch.  Thank you for your understanding.

Arts organisations are the beating heart of their communities and Lighthouse is no exception. For more than 40 years this is where the people of Poole and the wider community have gathered together to share cultural experiences, it’s where lives are enriched and memories made.

And so it will be again. Just for now though we must all lead slightly different lives.

We look 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.
