Lyric Build Begins

9th March 2009 by Maura McHugh

Today The Stage mentions that contractors are now in possession of the Langan-side site for the new Lyric theatre in South Belfast. It will have two performance spaces, and is due to reopen in early 2010.

Finance minister Nigel Dodds said: “The Lyric is one of Northern Ireland’s most important cultural assets and I believe that the new theatre will provide a much-valued facility for audiences and artists alike. The Lyric is also recognised for the important role it has played and will continue to play in the development of drama in Northern Ireland.”
