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.

It’s crucial that Rishi Sunak’s statement today supports live music. 210,000 people rely on concerts and festivals for employment, but we’ll be one of the last sectors to open. The UK’s live music industry is world-beating. Without support, it won’t survive #LetTheMusicPlay
Be careful if they cancel show due to covid they keep £10 booking fee, they did it with me and stated it was in thier terms and conditions, WATCH OUT !!!
I contacted the Lowry about a performance for the Gruffalo in December on 15th August and im still waiting to hear back. I knownits says longer than normal response times but a month!!
HAVE YOU LOST TOUCH WITH A FAMILY MEMBER OR FREIND & ever wondered were they could be now, add their name here ON THIS NEW PAGE & lets see if anyone here knows of them & good luck in your findings 😉 All WELCOME TO JOIN ,CLICK THE LINK TO JOIN https://www.facebook.com/groups/324803755385902
Worrying this venue not taking health & safety seriously. 30 people just left cinema all got standed trying to get to car park.... could not believe fire exits locked.... security guard says they short staffed and cannot patrol everywhere. .... admitted management know and say security comes above safety 👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼
We had a visit to mottram last weekend 😊
I have tickets for Nutcracker in November - can you tell me if this will go ahead? many thanks
Please can someone contact me re order no 33665078 I have tried to call and email but no reply. The event has passed and there has been no contact re a refund. Many thanks L Gordon
I've got tickets booked for Burlesque in July and it seems to have vanished off your website, not heard anything to say its been cancelled. Just wondering whats going on. I appreciate you must be swamped at the minute but just want to know whats happening with it. Thanks
Once again the Lowry fail to deliver. My wife was due to see Curious Incident in Sep and it was cancelled. We emailed as requested and followed it up by email to say that we want a refund. They promised the refund within 28 days its now over 40 days and when you ring they don't answer and say they are closed until July. What a joke as all we get are replies saying its in hand when it clearly isn't.
