A Business South Champion

BH Live is the south coast’s leading operator of leisure and event venues – a social enterprise that designs and builds engaging experiences to inspire people and enrich lives

BH Live is firmly at the heart of the UK’s growing social economy and is a member of Social Enterprise UK. Its three main objectives are:


1. To encourage more people to take part in physical activity – by providing leisure facilities to encourage active communities and improve health and wellbeing.


2. To attract bigger entertainment audiences – with a diverse range of cultural and artistic events that appeal to a wide variety of tastes.


3. To deliver economic benefit – by hosting major conferences, exhibitions and events that benefit the local, regional and international economy.

Each year BH Live hosts hundreds of events, sells over half a million cultural, sporting and entertainment tickets, gets more people active and clocks up more than three million leisure centre attendances. It also welcomes hundreds of thousands of conference and exhibition delegates to business events. This generates millions of pounds in economic benefit through business and cultural tourism.

BH Live is an Investor in People and has won several accolades for its venues and services including Company of the Year (Venus Awards), Leisure Trust Gym Operator of the Year (National Fitness Awards) Green Initiative of the Year (Bournemouth Tourism Awards) and Impact of New Facility (Sporta).
