A Message from Lyra and our Response to Covid 19 

In the interests of the health and safety of all our participants, their families, our staff and the wider community, regrettably, Lyra has suspended all weekly sessions with immediate effect and postponed upcoming events until further notice. 
Lyra’s building has been jam-packed with activity and creativity, including a Lyra and Imaginate Artist in Residence project, Young Company rehearsals and Culture Crew sessions. The Young Artists were in the final rehearsal phase for the first ever Lyra Commissions Festival, featuring four brand new works created in collaboration with the 2019/20 commissioned artists. Lyra staff are now working towards alternative dates for postponed performances and events. 
We want to take this opportunity to thank every participant, their parents/carers, our partners, artists and the freelance team for their understanding and support. 
Please keep up-to-date via our Facebook & Instagram pages, as we plan to stay connected to our participants digitally and share ways to stay creative throughout this time.
