Lighthouse History

Lighthouse was started in Great Missenden, Buckinghamshire in 1987 when a group of Christians from local Churches decided to arrange some fun activities for children and young people during the school summer holidays.

The event was a resounding success and over 350 children attended this initial event.

Lighthouse has since gone from strength to strength with thousands of children attending events across the country.

Lighthouse Thame & Villages was first launched in 2008.

Following a fallow year in 2018, Lighthouse 2019 will be the 11th Lighthouse to run in Thame.

In 2018 we joined Lighthouse Central an organisation that facilitates the start of new Lighthouses across the UK.
