Lighthouse is a source of inspiration and pride to our community and the wider region.
We are the centre of artistic excellence for live events, film and visual art in Poole, providing a dynamic cultural facility for Poole, Dorset and the South West. We are an essential part in the delivery of the National and Regional Arts Strategy and have an important role as a receiving venue for national and international theatre, dance, music, contemporary circus and film.
We support and enable the creation of work and artist development and provide a home for the region’s orchestra, BSO. Lighthouse is integral to the economic and cultural profile of both the town and region.
We are passionate about providing opportunities for our community to experience the benefit the arts bring to individuals, communities and the cultural identity of the place in which we live.
