Lyric Hammersmith launches Lyric 360

By Robin Johnson Published 8 November 2017

The Lyric Hammersmith have today launched an innovative feature in ‘Lyric 360’, a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the venue’s production of The Seagull.

The documentary centres on the making of the recent Lyric Hammersmith production of The Seagull, in a new version penned by Simon Stephens. This charts the formation of the production, from early planning right the way through to opening night, with interviews from the theatre-makers involved and staff throughout the building which highlight the Lyric’s extensive programmes for young people.

Part of a partnership between the Lyric and Digital Theatre+, ‘Lyric 360’ is now live on the theatre’s website for a month. It will then be exclusively available to view as part of DT+’s education platform.

The newly formed partnership between the Lyric Hammersmith and Digital Theatre+ is focused on the creation of new digital learning resources, which will be available to schools and students nationally and internationally through the DT+ education platform, and the promotion of creative education in the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham, where the Lyric is based.

In its first year, the partnership will encompass a range of initiatives, including the creation of a number of short digital films and documentaries that illuminate the life of a leading UK producing theatre. Schools in the area will benefit from unique access to the new resources.

For more information, please visit the venue’s website.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
