‘‘The Lyric …it’s simply a theatre that thinks for itself.’’ A.A. Milne
We are the Lyric Hammersmith Theatre. We are the civic and creative heart of West London. We believe that everyone deserves to experience the life changing impact of theatre.
In our big, beautiful theatre, we tell stories that matter and work with exceptional talent to make ambitious, entertaining, inspiring shows for our audience in West London and beyond.
We remove barriers to engagement and ensure young people have the opportunity to discover the power of their creativity, shaping the future of British theatre.
We are inclusive, forward looking and unafraid of change – we are proud of our history and ambitious for our future.
