The Lowry

The Lowry A spectacular waterside building housing theatres, galleries, restaurant, café/bars and gift shop.

Situated on the waterside at the heart of The Quays, The Lowry is a stunning, award winning building housing two vibrant theatres, a studio space, relaxing art galleries, cafés, bars, a restaurant and souvenir gift shop. With a huge variety of performances, The Lowry's Lyric and Quays Theatres offer a wealth of fabulous entertainment, including West End musicals, the very best in drama, live bands, famous comedians, plus world class dance and opera. From Peter Kay to the Kirov Ballet, Morrissey to Alan Bennett and much more, you'll find something to appeal to all tastes. Gallery entry is free and you can enjoy the work of one of the nation's favourite artists, LS Lowry, in changing exhibitions of his work which we hope will offer some surprises. At the same time, experience work by artists of local, national and international renown to compliment our Lowry exhibitions. There's always something new and refreshing to see in our galleries. With family fun throughout the building, guided tours, the Meet Mr Lowry film, plus participatory activity for all ages, The Lowry is a great day out.

Ghost Stories........ If you enjoy great story telling with moments that shock and scare then this is a must see. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Congratulations to all.
The Lowry is much vaunted Our Lowry, "tickets for locals" turns out to be bogus. I bought 3 tickets for Sarah and duck at full price £50. Then five days later their discount email turns up, but they won't exchange the tickets for the discounted tickets, and they won't refund your money either. Not so much Our Lowry as Their Lowry. Pathetic.
What great information thank you for the details on the party
Why are employed people penalised by having to pay the higher cost?
Two Fascinatin Aida Tickets for sale at face value. Duplicate birthday present. 22 March 2020. Row G circle. PM for purchase. Genuine sale, can check purchase details.
I have an E-Ticket on my phone for Band Of Gold! Do I Actually NEED!! To Physically Print Out The Ticket? Or Can I Just Show It On My Phone?
Just wanted to say a massive Thankyou for last night . Really enjoyed Band of Gold and super impressed with the staff . I’m registered disabled and wasn’t sure I would get there tbh as I yesterday wasn’t my best day , but every staff member was so helpful and polite , very efficient too , anything that could be done to make the night easier was done . Even on the car park we were helped when leaving What a great night , I really can’t thank everyone enough xx
Went to see Clinton Bapiste last night which was great. However, who's great idea was it to have shows finishing at the same time? It's a nightmare getting out of the car park at the best of times. But last night it had taken us so long to get to the exit (over 50 minutes) our parking ticket had expired and wouldn't let us out unless we paid more! Thanks to the guy trying desperately to control traffic and managed to over ride it. It's the second time this has happened to me (last time the red team was at home and took 1hr 20 so already avoid home game dates) Going forward, I think it would have to be something very special to see to risk that car park ordeal again.
Hi Re: Kaleidoscope, our son is 3 and in a wheelchair but would absolutely love this, it says age 6m to 18m can we still book on please Book now: https://bit.ly/36TfmgQ
Saw An Inspector Calls this afternoon. Excellent production, really enjoyed it. As it is a GCSE set book this year it was packed with school children but their behaviour was impecable. Very impressed.
IS ANYONE SELLING TICKETS FOR SIX TOMORROW PLEASE?
PLEASE HELP! My son is autistic and when he sees a show he collects the programme.We went to see the Grinch in December at the Lowry unfortunately they had run out. A friend of ours has been in the last few day to get us one they had run out again.Does anyone know where we could get hold of one please!
