The Lyric Hammersmith opened in 1888 as a music hall in a different location to where it stands now. The staggering success of this venue meant it was rebuilt and enlarged twice, and it was rebranded as the New Lyric Opera House in 1895.
In 1966, the theatre was due to be demolished but a successful campaign saved it. The auditorium was dismantled and reassembled in its current location. The new theatre opened in 1979 and has two performing areas: the main house with 550 seats and 19th century styling, and a 120-seat studio.
The Lyric Hammersmith looks onto Lyric Square. On the ground floor, there is a cafe and the box office. Upstairs, there is a bar and grill which is open to everyone, not just those with tickets to see a performance, and opens onto a large terrace.
