Education

The Lyric is pleased to offer a variety of packages and ticket offers for schools, colleges and universities across London and the UK.

Our work in Education makes full use of the state of the art facilities in our Reuben Foundation Wing which houses a multitude of spaces, such as TV and recording studios, cinema, dance studio and rehearsal rooms.

Tickets

We offer tickets at £15 per student with one free teacher ticket for every ten students. For more information please call the Box Office on 020 8741 6850 or schools@lyric.co.uk.

Workshops

We offer workshops around our main house programme to enhance your students’ knowledge and understanding of the show. We also deliver bespoke workshops around Theatre styles, techniques and practitioners. These are all delivered by our Lyric directors and creatives. For Primary Schools we offer curriculum based workshops and enrichment days at Key Stage 1 & 2.

Backstage Tours

Our backstage tour offers a unique insight into the workings of one London’s leading producing Theatres. Tours offer the opportunity to explore non-performance routes into Theatre and gain a deeper understanding of all of the backstage roles. These are tailored to the age, study requirements and the interests of your students.

SEN Schools

We are committed to ensuring the Lyric is accessible for all young people. Our facilities include a state of the art sensory space, fully accessible building and relaxed performances to accommodate all student’s needs.

Work Experience

Further / Higher Education

We work closely with drama schools and universities to ensure opportunities for young people to gain professional experience in the industry. We offer a limited number of work experience placements in multiple departments of the Lyric. These placements are offered based on the needs of the team and are subject to our main house programming and projects that run throughout the year.

Schools

We are committed to providing quality work experience for local students and will be running a week long work experience project from Monday 9 July – Friday 13 July for year 10 students who study within the borough of Hammersmith and Fulham. This is currently the only work experience opportunity we are able to offer to school students.
