The Lyric is committed to reducing its impact on the environment.

Our Current Green Campaign: #LyricLent


#LyricLent is our new environmental campaign which will see us undertaking a series of collective and individual environmental actions during March and April through to Easter!

Taking the inspiration of Lent, we’re asking everyone what we can give up in order to make positive environmental impacts. We will be running a series of initiatives to engage encourage staff, Trustees, acting companies, creative teams, young people, practitioners, partners, audiences and our local community.

Throughout our campaign we will be asking everyone around the building what they’re personally giving up for Lent – see our gallery below!

We hope our campaign will inspire new ways of thinking about the Lyric’s environmental impact, sustainability and wellbeing and help create further long-lasting change to build on our existing achievements.

  • Week 1: Give Up Waste Week
  • Week 2: Focus on Drinks Week
  • Week 3: Paperless Week
  • Week 4: Powerless Week
  • Week 5: Food Focus Week
  • Week 6: Air Quality and Travel Week

Tweet us what you’re giving up using hashtag #LyricLent or follow our green initiatives on Twitter and Facebook.

Cyril Bjorn

Cyril (an anagram of Lyric and Bjorn meaning bear in Scandinavian) the polar bear is the Lyric’s Green mascot. It is Cyril’s job to remind everyone to look after the environment.

He likes to wander around the building and often appears in some of the photos with our cast. So watch out you never know where you’ll see him!
