What an absolutely fantastic time we all had at our second Holistic Festival at Lighthouse Poole's Centre for Arts in Dorset on the 30th and 31st January 2016. People flocked in from all round the area and further afield and we almost doubled attendance from last year! The atmosphere was simply inspirational. 

Each year, the weekend brings together a wonderful array of over 90 interesting stands to explore, therapies and healing to try, as well as advice to improve health and well-being along with some fascinating workshops, talks and performances. Our exhibitors travel from across the UK to join us, and together we create an unforgettable, magical experience for our visitors. 

This year, we welcomed Barbara Meiklejohn Free, Flavia Kate Peters, Patrick Gamble and Debbi Walker for the first time. They all had a tremendous time and will be back next year. After calling in to visit us, we may also have the pleasure of the ever popular celebrity David Wells joining us too next year too. Watch this space!

As next year's event unfolds throughout the year, you will get to see who will be joining us - and the wonderful programme of talks, workshops and performances you will be able to enjoy, so do drop by regularly.

Thanks to all who made 2016 so amazing; visitors, exhibitors, helpers and Lighthouse staff. We look forward to doing it all again this time next year!!!

For the second year, we held a fantastic raffle in support of Poole Hospital, Dorset Cancer Care, in memory of my dear sister, Jane McCheyne, who worked for many happy years at the hospital, and who received incredible care there before her passing last April. This year, we raised the wonderful sum of £244.56. Thank you to all who contributed the raffle.

We very much look forward to welcoming you at Lighthouse as we celebrate the New Year in style in 2017! Dates to be confirmed!
