Lighthouse, Poole's Centre for the Arts started life as a big ambition to inject culture into the Poole community. 32 years later our big ambitions are still going strong. And we're just getting started.
Opened in 1978 as Poole Arts Centre, we were born as a response to a lack of cultural facilities in the South East Dorset. Conceived, designed and delivered by an ambitious local authority keen to invest in cultural provision for its community the Centre was unrivalled in the region for the opportunities it presented to experience such breadth and such quality all under one roof.
Lighthouse is proud to be the home venue of The Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra. Lighthouse issues over 200,000 tickets a year and estimates that other non-ticketed activities in the building and in the community would readily increase that usage to in excess of 300,000 (more than double the population of Poole itself!)
