Description

Northern Ireland's only full time producing theatre.

The Lyric Theatre has two performance spaces (389 seat Danske Bank Stage and 120 seat studio space). With its continually full programme, there's always a production worth seeing no matter when you visit. The theatre has breathtaking views of the River Lagan and its gourmet café makes the venue well worth a visit on its own merits.

Described by the Daily Telegraph's architecture critic Ellis Woodman as one of the 'best British buildings built this century', the stunning £18 million building has won a series of awards for its architecture over the years.
