Theatre Shows

Lyra's professional theatre in the heart of Craigmillar is your local venue to come and see brilliant shows for children, teenagers and families. Lyra's Culture Crew choose the shows and host brilliant visiting companies including Catherine Wheels Theatre Company, Curious Seed and many more. Each year, the theatre welcomes shows as part of Imaginate, the Edinburgh International Children's Festival. And, of course, the theatre showcases the work of Lyra's Young Artists at each year's Bright & Wild Festival and shows by Lyra's Young Company.

Tickets to all of Lyra's Theatre Shows are free and are supported by Scops Arts Trust and National Lottery Community Fund: Young Start
