Lyric Fundraising Gala – Auction Prizes for the highest bidders!

The Lyric team are busy planning a big fundraiser called ‘Light up the Lyric’ to raise vital funds to ensure we can reach young people from all backgrounds in West London to benefit from the arts.

The biggest way we raise money is through auction prizes in a silent and live auction. Even if you cannot join us on the night, you can place absent bids.

Some highlights include a luxury holiday in Morocco for 12 people, a dedicated publication of the Fleabag scriptures by Phoebe Waller-Bridge, and a private screening for 50 people of Sam Mendes’ new upcoming film 1917 with its stars George MacKay and Colin Firth there in person for a Q&A.

The website is live, and you can see the full list and start bidding here:

You can set a maximum bid for silent auction items to make sure you don’t miss out, and if you’re interested in sending in an absent bid for the Live auctions you can email the auctioneer, Tom Best, on

The money raised on the evening will be supporting the Lyric’s programmes that are working to ensure that all young people and children in west London can have access to the arts. Whether that is a young person seeing theatre for the very first time, having the opportunity to develop their own creativity through theatre-making, or being supported to build a successful and sustainable career in the creative industries, one of the UK’s biggest employers. All the money raised through the auction will be supporting this.

Thank you.
