We'll see you again soon. Sadly, but for all the right reasons, the joy of live performances and our film programme is on hold for a little while longer but with determination, a can-do approach and our usual showbiz gusto we will be back .

We have loved being back for our soft opening and for the time being Lighthouse will continue booking shows and films for socially distanced audiences. We are running with a very small team for now, all of whom have worked hard behind the scenes to ensure the best possible experience for you, our customers.



The reaction of our ticket holders to our closure and subsequents re opening has really lifted our spirits over the last year. 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. Whilst this funding is essential to us now, we could not have made it this far without your support. 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. 


Many of our regular Sherling Studio shows have been rescheduled and moved into the Theatre where there is more space.   A few performances are still holding dates for 2021.

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.

All ticket holders are entitled to retain their ticket for a rescheduled date or in the case of a cancellation, for a refund. We continue to contact ticket holders and know we have a few of you that we have not been able to reach for various reasons.  

Our ticket office phone lines have variable opening times and our emails are monitored.  We are getting in touch with ticket holders for any shows that have been affected. Thank you for your patience and 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.
