Lyric life

The Big Give Champions for Children Challenge is now open!

We would be so grateful if you could head HERE to donate and have your donation to the Lyric doubled.

Donations to the Big Give can only be made during Challenge Week, Midday 23 June – Midday 30 June online via the Lyric Hammersmith Theatre Big Give Page.

Please help us reach our target of £40,000, which will ensure that when we can fully open again, we have the funds to reopen our beautiful theatre to those in need of our support.

You can also help by spreading the word on social media using the hashtag #LyricHammersmithBigGive.

The Lyric has been at the heart of West London for 125 years. We vitally need your support at this time to fulfil our role in the community for the 125 years to come.

Many thanks in advance for your support.


Rachel O’Riordan, Artistic Director: “Lyric Hammersmith Theatre is a vital part of our brilliant borough. We are a civic resource, and believe that our community is the lifeblood of a great theatre. Recently, the pandemic has damaged that community. Local people have not been able to come into the theatre, to be together and share their experiences. I know how amazing theatre can make people feel, and how it can help us process our feelings and reflect on the world around us. The Lyric is Hammersmith’s theatre. We are proud to be able to be there for our youngest citizens. Please help us continue to be at the heart of our borough, for everyone.”

Sian Alexander, Executive Director: “The Lyric has been at the heart of Hammersmith for 125 years. Now more than ever we are asking our local community to rally round and support the theatre so that we, in turn, can continue to be here for everyone in the months and years to come. Nurturing the creativity and talent of the next generation and creating opportunities for everyone is central to our work and it would mean so much to us to have your support. I hope you will continue donating at this time if you possibly can – every £1 you give will be generously doubled by our champion funders and The Childhood Trust. Thank you so much from everyone at the Lyric.”
