We went to see Seventeen, but really struggled with it. The cast list comprises an utterly implausible mix of school leavers ranging from the leading character, whose skanky vocabulary was dominated by variations on the 'F' word, to a demure, queen's English accented, somewhat sensitive, lady who ends up taking pity on the bloke who sleeps rough in the park...

Had a great evening watching this fantastic play. Enjoyed a quick bite and drink upstairs before hand. There were some younger audience members who were quite excitable but seemed to just be very into the story.

Went with my family to watch Fantastic Mr Fox. The show was great and we all were laughing throughout the performance. Handy snack bar which is not too busy. Located close to the shops and the station. Great evening out.

A great half term afternoon spent at the Lyric with my 4 year old, who was absorbed by all the acting, in this wonderfully retold classic story of Roald Dahl'..

Went with my children and another family to watch Fantastic Mr Fox. Lovely theatre with a restaurant and rooftop garden. Conveniently located opposite Hammersmith station. Lots of restaurants nearby. Show was simply fantastic leaving the kids and us adults with a desire to watch it again. Lovely evening out!!!

A very welcoming, informal venue. The staff are friendly and there is a fun, vibrant atmosphere. The cafe/bar serves delicious, good value meals which are ideal pre-show. There is also a children's menu. An attractive roof terrace offers a great view of the surrounding area and provides a good place to meet before a performance. We took our seven year... More

The lyric is a reassembled opera house I believe, that was due to be demolished but was saved, and the rebuilt inside an ugly concrete block. However once inside its a quite delightful building and all credit to those who had the foresight and wherewithall to save it. We were here to see Alladin as a treat for our grandson... More
