Black Lives Matter: Our commitment to change

There is no place for racism in society, the theatre sector or the Lyric. We apologise profoundly to anyone who has experienced this under our roof.

We are committed to taking whatever steps are necessary to ensure change for the better and to be actively anti-racist. We know that words are not enough and we have a responsibility to act. This process has already begun, in consultation with our staff and wider team.

We are committing to transparency in this work and will share data on our journey so far and future actions, so that we can hold ourselves to account publicly.
