King Street will be closed this weekend, July 13 and 14 and next weekend, July 20 and 21 to allow for the arrival of a huge crane making its way towards the Lyric Hammersmith.

The crane marks the start of phase two of the theatre's Capital Development project, building work which the Lyric says takes it a step closer to the new building being ready for opening in the summer of 2014.

The Lyric says it will be changing the landscape of Hammersmith by building new drama, dance, film and TV recording studios; a 60-seat cinema; and a new bar and café.

The Lyric also aims to become one of the most sustainable cultural buildings in London with a Green Roof; almost 100% LED lighting; and reclaimed furniture.

Further details of the project can be found here.
