If Bugsy Malone is any indication, the future of the West End is bright Kudos for an ambitious first production! The Lyric Hammersmith has successfully directed 35 actors aged 9 to 22 (with 7 leads under 16!)to produce a polished production of Bugsy Malone. The standout was Eleanor Worthington-Cox as Bugsy’s wisecracking, would-be starlet sweetheart Blousey, her voice gave me... More

Small theatre for various shows. Very hot in the summer inside the venue but overall a good feel. I liked the roof top garden. The restaurant is a grill/Kebab style which was nice also.

My husband and I had a fantastic time when we visited the Hammersmith to see Bugsy Malone. We'd definitely recommend it as being better than the film! The production, in our opinion, have looked at the weaker areas of the film and have improved these scenes a hundred fold! Fantastic energy and talent! One thing about the Hammersmith itself, the...

Loved this venue. Such friendly staff and great space. My sister and I watched a Midsummer Night's Dream a few months ago and was absolutely hilarious. Our seats got upgraded as it was not sold out which was a bonus and would definitely go again!

Every Thursday and Friday there is a good food market in Hammersith at lyric square. They are starting from 11 till 15. Depends on the demand. I have tried few times the food from there and every time was happily amazed. First time I tried Jamaican jerk chicken with brown rise which was delicious and a huge portion. Second time... More

My three stars for Lyric is not for the Bugsy Malone performance which was brilliant nor for hard working people at the theatre but for the broken air conditioning system which made sitting at the theatre unbearable! The show was amazing, the performers were excellent and songs were so so good. The talent these young people have is inspiring. I... More

Something a bit different here, and I mustn't be too harsh, as everybody worked there socks off and seemed committed to giving the best show they could. Anybody whos seen the film will be aware of whats going on, for those who havent(like me) its basically a gangster story played out by kids, in the main. Cant fault the effort... More

The theater is clean, modern and great. Views excellent from all seats. However, the main attraction are the stars of the show. Not really a fan of the theater, but this was incredible. The acting, singing, music, comedy were brilliant. Best £20 I have spent in years. Please go and see this play

The theatre is welcoming and we were lucky to have a great performance of Bugsy Malone! We had stalls seats and they were... More

Were big fans of the original Bugsy Malone film so thought we would go and see the show. It was fantastic, dancing and acting brilliant all round and thank goodness they didn't mess with the original fantastic soundtrack and sang the songs brilliantly with a few minor adjustments of course (for show purposes expect) Fat Sam was brilliant and the...
