The home of the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra - a first-rate orchestra. There is also a theatre which we did not see. Cafe was busy, we had to share a table for our pre-concert drinks, which were good value.

This year's Christmas offering at Lighthouse, Poole is a very average affair. Ironic that one of the gimmicks in it was a team of Pantomime Inspectors checking all was in order when the storyline was all over the place and we were never quite sure...More
