More about the Lyric Shaftesbury Avenue
The Lyric, Shaftesbury Avenue's oldest theatre was opened in 1888, just two years after the street itself was completed. An indistinct red brick building, it lacks the grandeur of the neighbouring Gielgud and Apollo, but has a charm and unassuming beauty that are all its own. The auditorium is also unconventional, with u-shaped balconies offering fine unrestricted views and bringing the audience closer to the action than in many large theatres. Though designed as a home for comic opera, the Lyric's major successes have been with serious drama. The Kenneth Branagh/Emma Thompson partnership had one of its first major successes in 1989 with Osborne's Look Back in Anger. Alan Bennett's Habeas Corpus premiered here, starring Alec Guinness and with Bennett in drag as Mrs Swabb, the cleaning lady. Other successes include the premier of Alan Ayckbourn's How the Other Half Loves (1973) and high-energy musical Five Guys Named Moe.

In the midst of the peak tourist season, LondonTown within 24 hours managed to find me three alternatives for a group business booking in central London, all at great rates. It would have taken me days to do this on my own, even if I’d known all the hotels to approach. Great time and money saving, thanks LondonTown!

Huge thanks to you once again, I tried to find a group hotel deal online but was unable to; LondonTown really did an excellent job
Sales Operations Manager CEG UK
I just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for all your tremendously patient help over the last few months. We had a really successful conference, and all the reports I heard of the hotel and the whole experience were really positive. I do hope we weren’t too much trouble, especially with all the constant changes of numbers etc! Do just let me know if there’s still any follow-up to be done, but otherwise thanks again for your great work
