While restrictions around social distancing are in place our re-opening will be gradual with a small programme in the theatre and the Cinema. Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra has resumed rehearsals in the Concert Hall ready for a season of online concerts. The Beacon café is opening too along with some behind-closed-doors rehearsals, courses and classes.

For now, Lighthouse is looking at what we can do with limited funding and social distancing and have done all we can to make it happen.  There is a serious gap in our funding between now and the moment we can welcome back audiences without social distancing, and so we have launched our 'Bridge the Gap' appeal. Our request is simple – we’re asking you, our loyal supporters and customers, to give what you can (a donation, buy a ticket, become a friend)  to help us survive the next few months and 'bridge the gap' to a better time when we can once again welcome full houses in our performance spaces.

We have worked hard behind the scenes  to get the building ready and can't wait to welcome you back.
