The Lyric Theatre, in partnership with the local authority, are hosting an exhibition of artworks produced by local unaccompanied asylum-seeking children to mark Refugee Week (20th-26th June).

We have a growing refugee and asylum-seeking population in Hammersmith and Fulham, including a large number of Afghan refugees and an increasing number of arrivals from Ukraine. This exhibition is an opportunity to celebrate the talents of our diverse community and showcase our borough as one that welcomes refugees and all those fleeing conflict and persecution.

The exhibition will be open to the general public and local schools free of charge. Schools will be offered visiting slots on Monday 20th, Tuesday 21st, Thursday 23rd and Friday 24th June between 10am and 2pm. The Lyric can accommodate 30 students at any one time, with a minimum of 2 school staff members accompanying them. To book your 30-minute slot, please complete the attached spreadsheet as soon as possible (deadline is Friday 10th June). Slots will be allocated on a first come first served basis. If you have any further queries, please contact Sophie Veitch ( for more details.
