Tickets are now on sale for the Lyric Hammersmith Gala. The biennial gala, which celebrates the theatre’s work with young people, will be hosted by Mel Giedroyc and Lyric alumni, writer and Benidorm star Nathan Bryon and will feature performances from Jude Law, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Joe Stilgoe, Vikki Stone and Deanna Rodger alongside the Lyric’s young artists. The show is curated by the Lyric’s Artistic Director Sean Holmes.
The gala will raise funds to continue grow the Lyric’s important work in supporting a diverse new generation of artists and creatives and will see the auditorium transformed into a festival setting.
Sean Holmes, Artistic Director said: “This Gala celebrates the unique vision of the Lyric as a home to the highest quality theatre and the best inspirational work with young people.
“In a glorious synthesis of these two strands, leading theatre, comedy and music artists will partner with our young performers to deliver a Gala show of surprise, delight and collaboration across the generations.
“At the centre of this, in a splendid showcase of his acting mettle – Jude Law will perform in six two character mini plays written by our young writers. Each of the plays will feature one of our Young Lyric actors, giving them the chance to share the main stage with Jude.”
