The Tivoli (Wimborne), 19 West Borough, Wimborne. BH21 1LT
The Tivoli was built in 1936 as a cine/theatre and the tradition of showing both films and live stage shows continues to the present day. Local people enjoy the finest and latest films available and with full surround sound. The Tivoli is justly proud that for a theatre of its size it has brought productions to this area which would not have been thought possible back in 1993. The feedback from artistes and agents backs up the claim to this phenomenal Success.

The Barrington Centre is an arts and community hub serving Ferndown and the surrounding areas with a theatre, function rooms, cafe, and bar. In addition to the great entertainment at our theatre, we also host regular community activities provided by the likes of the Womens Institute.

Parsonage Barn Lane, Ringwood. Hampshire. BH24 1SE
