Cast your mind back to summer festivals, sat outside with a drink, relaxing with friends and soaking up the atmosphere. The anticipation beforehand, the long lazy day listening to music, dancing, leaving your cares behind.  Now hold that thought and fast forward to today as you  look forward to Live and Unheard 'The Bit on the Side'.  Enjoy your very own mini festival afternoon in the intimate amphitheatre at Lighthouse.

Extend your day. If you book for both the daytime and evening events on 3 July you'll pay only £20 for a day of chilled music and summer vibes.*
