Tivoli Theatre

Built in 1936 as a cinema and theatre, by the late 70s the Tivoli was under threat of demolition but following a long campaign to save the building it reopened in 1993. Today it continues its tradition of showing a mixture of cinema and live performance and sometimes both, with a good deal of events being event cinema screenings. It receives no Lottery or government funding and relies for its revenue entirely on its customers and supporters.

The nearest train station to Wimborne Minster is Poole, nearly eight miles away. The No 3 bus runs a regular service from Poole station to the centre of the town.
