Director of Young Lyric, Rob Lehmann said: “We are delighted that we can safely programme our classes at the Lyric for young people in West London. Pre pandemic the Lyric welcomed over 700 young people into the building each week and although we may not resume to that capacity for some time, we are delighted that the creativity, expertise and impact of the arts for young people will once again populate and thrive within our building from January 2021.”

To book a class you need to be a Young Lyric Member, costing £10 a year. The membership provides access to classes, £5 tickets to all Lyric Main House shows and further creative opportunities throughout the year. Find out how to join here.
