At Lighthouse events, concession discount is available to:
• People who are unwaged, in receipt of Pension Credit, Universal Credit, Income Support or Job Seekers allowance;
• Part-time and full-time students;
• People with disabilities (we understand that not all disabilities are visible!)
(one free ticket for a PA/companion is available either on checkout page or upon request);

If purchasing a concession priced ticket, please ensure that the person the ticket is intended for meets the correct criteria. We reserve the right to ask for proof of eligibility on the day of attendance and deny entrance without a refund in cases of evident abuse of the concession price system.
We are a registered charity and survive with the help of ticket sales, so please withhold from purchasing concession priced tickets if you do not meet the correct criteria. At Lighthouse, we are committed to fighting isolation that people with difficult life circumstances encounter; thus, we reserve concessions for people who genuinely need these to engage with our cultural programme.
