Lowry art

Salford Lowry has posted a message in lights on Salford Quays, proclaiming how art should be a human right rather than a luxury.

Theatres across the country are looking at closing after the coronavirus pandemic shut most businesses over the last three months.

Julia Fawcett OBE, Chief Executive of the Lowry, previously said: “Venues up and down the country – including The Lowry – are desperate to begin preparations to re-open their doors and get fantastic work by artists onto our stages for the public to enjoy safely.

“Instead, we received a vague and ambiguous statement that has confused many and helped no one.

“Other sectors have been given dates to work with – and performing arts should be no different.

Lowry proposes support for all contracted staff until it can re-open

“Without a clear plan, with clear timetables for implementation, we are putting the entire theatres sector further into crisis, our sector deserves better.”

Tomorrow is so-called “Super Saturday”, seeing the re-opening of many businesses across the UK.

A specific date for the Lowry’s reopening is still unknown.
