Lighthouse: OUTSIDE - Olly Olsson
in light of the forecast foul weather on Saturday night the decision has been taken to move the Olly Olssøn show planned for Lighthouse: OUTSIDE indoors to the Theatre where it can take place under COVID-secure conditions to a fully social distanced audience.
Olly played his first sell-out headliner at Lighthouse last April and was due to play another sold out show this autumn with a full band, but that had to be rearranged because of the pandemic. He jumped at the chance to play a part in the first ever Lighthouse: OUTSIDE programme of live outdoor performances in the amphitheatre beside the building, but in the interests of safety and the comfort of his audience he is enormously relieved that the show can still go on indoors.
After the launch of his first EP, Footsteps in the Dark on iTunes and Spotify last year, his focus has been on writing and producing new material. Although his love for complex piano scores is very much at its core, a series of new tracks with Olly on guitar is the result of working with mentor Micky Waters (bassist from rock band The Answer) to widen genres and reach for higher ranges.
Living in Lymington and working in Bournemouth, Olly remains firmly rooted in the region and is excited to be debuting his new tracks at Lighthouse in what has become his home venue.
Missing Lighthouse? Trust us, we are too.
So we thought, if we can’t perform indoors, then we’ll go outside…
Pack a picnic, bring your friends and family and enjoy four unforgettable weekends of live theatre, music, comedy (for the grown ups and for kids) and more.
Set in the amphitheatre to the side of Lighthouse, become immersed in this outdoor theatrical experience, with a great view of some of the best artists and musicians taking part. You'll be seated on the grass, so please feel free to bring your own chairs, picnic rug, blankets and cushions to sit on. Completing your outdoor experience, our Studio bar will be open, so you can grab a refreshment and sit back and enjoy live performance once again.
Please book your tickets in advance online. We can't wait to see you again soon.
Local artist / singer song writer Olly Olssøn played his first sell-out headliner at Lighthouse in April ‘19, followed by a summer of festival debuts with his live performance growing into a fourpiece band. As part of this year's Lighthouse: OUTSIDE we are delighted he will be performing new material and old favourites to an audience that has been hungry to see him perform here again
How will it work and where to find us
Lighthouse:OUTSIDE performances take place to the side of our building. Opening 30 minutes before each show. Our friendly team will scan your tickets on arrival – just print them or have the PDF ready on your phone.
We’ll be seating household and social bubbles at a social distance for the performance. Please make sure your booking is for your household/social bubble only. This will give us an idea of how many picnics/groups we will have. If you want to book for someone else who isn’t in your household/social bubble, that’s fine. Just book for your household and then book their tickets as a new transaction.
Lighthouse: OUTSIDE will take place outdoors, in all weathers, so please dress appropriately. We won’t allow umbrellas on-site as they block sight lines – but ponchos and raincoats can be rather fetching. You can also bring your own picnic as long as you promise to take your rubbish when you go!
Keeping You Safe
This show is outside at Lighthouse and the audience will be socially distanced with safety measures in place so you can relax and enjoy yourself.
We have done everything we can to make sure you are safe and would ask that you do the same for us. We are putting together a handy set of answers to any questions about our saftey measures which we will publish very soon and will send you a link before you join us outside.
Please see website for ticket information.
