Venue DescriptionThe Lyric Hammersmith is West London’s largest theatre and one of the leading producing theatres in the UK. We have a dual mission of presenting high quality contemporary theatre productions for audiences of all ages from across London as well as running a wide-ranging programme of workshops and projects aimed at nurturing the creativity of children, young people and emerging artists. The Lyric’s main house is a classic proscenium arch theatre and we also have a black box Studio theatre. In April 2015 we opened a major extension to the Lyric, called the Reuben Foundation Wing, which comprises a wide range of new facilities including dance, film and recording studios, a small cinema, digital playspace and sensory space for disabled young people.
The Lyric’s Main House and Studio have wheelchair access via lifts and both spaces have wheelchair spaces and disabled toilets. We offer discounted tickets for registered disabled customers and their companions. For all our main house shows we offer open captioned and audio-described performances as well as Touch Tours on set. We also offer BSL interpreted performances for certain shows. Both theatres have a Sennheiser infra-red audio enhancement system. Assistance dogs are welcome in the building and can either accompany their owners into the auditorium or can be looked after by an usher.
