Individuals

We need regular and committed support to deliver our ground-breaking work onstage and offstage with young people and there are a number of ways to get involved.

We run innovative programmes that help young people in West London to realise their creative potential and improve their life prospects.  We want to nurture a new diverse generation of theatre artists including those from socially excluded and disadvantaged backgrounds.

‘Every time I go to the Lyric it lifts my soul. I arrive stressed and leave re-energised and inspired.’

Peter Raymond, Lyric Friend

We need your help to make this happen. Please support us and join the Lyric family.

If you have any questions please contact the Development Team on development@lyric.co.uk or call 020 8741 6822 ext. 404.

Run the London Marathon for the Lyric

The Virgin Money London Marathon is the largest annual fundraising event on the planet – runners have raised over £890 million for good causes since the race began in 1981. The course follows an iconic route taking in many of London’s landmarks, from the Cutty Sark finishing along The Mall.

You can be a part of this incredible day running for the Lyric Hammersmith Theatre. The Lyric needs to raise close to £1 million every year to continue our work of producing world-class theatre in the heart of Hammersmith, whilst using theatre to transform the lives and futures of West London’s most vulnerable young people.

We have secured one place in the 2020 London Marathon, and if you’re interested in running for us please send an expression of interest telling us a little about yourself to development@lyric.co.uk

We ask that the runner commit to raising £2,000 for the Lyric, and we will support you to reach this target.
