Evening event at the Lyric


When the Lyric Theatre and Dance Hall was built in 1910, King George V had just been crowned, the first double decker bus entered service and Manchester United's Old Trafford Ground was opened.

The Lyric was used for various entertainments popular in the day, but nowadays the Lyric as a multi-use venue, plays host to local theatre groups, private parties, public functions, charity events and houses Dinnington Town Council offices.

Hold your own event or party at the Lyric

Looking at venues for a Christening, Birthday Party, Wedding Reception, Anniversary Celebration, Pantomime, Christmas play, talent night or sporting event?
