This theatre is well attended by locals and visitors alike. There is a great selection of shows. The facilities are clean well run and pleasant and airy. The seating in the theatre is comfortable. There is a large bar area and lots of seating. Great location. Easy parking and access.

“Real variety”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

A great venue catering for all tastes, the entertainment programmes offer the best variety and choice within 100 miles radius.

The facilities are very well maintained and there are also very good catering facilities.

We mainly attend for music events (all types of music) but have also been to dance productions, and have rarely been disappointed.

“Excellent venue”
Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

The lighthouse is a modern and well-designed venue, we recently more to Weymouth but still sometimes make the journey to see live comedy, music and theatre here. The tickets are reasonably priced, bar is comfortable and reasonably priced and staff are friendly. Parking is ok given it's right in he centre of town but have been stuck in a queue trying to get out of the multi storey if we don't leave quickly enough!

“Always very very good”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

Poole Lighthouse is a great resource for the residents of Poole and beyond to enjoy a wide range of interesting productions from An Audience With..type events through to West-End shows such as Abigail's Party that my partner and I saw last week.

The theatre is very intimate and very likely packed so make sure you book!! The experience of whatever you see at the Lighthouse is almost guaranteed to be brilliant from the booking, customer service, quality of the performance and the general atmosphere and environment of the theatre.

Performances aside a cafe, gallery space, bars and restaurant allow you to visit and enjoy the space at your convenience.

You'll leave the Lighthouse knowing you've had excitement, laugher, interest and education, surely the purpose of the Arts! Well recommended.
