In the Heart of Salford Quays, The Lowry brings theatre, opera, musicals, dance, music, comedy, and visual art to national and international audiences.
from Britain’s Got Talent to The Soap Awards. The Lowry has created a place for the people of Greater Manchester to make memories they can cherish with their families and friends.
Director of The Lowry Rachel Miller looked back on her favourite memories “One of my highlights from when I was first at The Lowry was the 2011 Royal Verity Performance, it was fantastic, there was a big range of performers including the quite legendary Tony Bennett, it was a heck of a lineup and a fantastic evening to celebrate the glitz and showbiz of live Theatre”
During their closure, they have kept their visitors entertained through live streaming and their Lowry Blog.
Rachel Miller hopes that the galleries re-opening in November should allow people to come back to the Theatre in a safe and controlled environment.
“We’re doing our very best to get leisure and Theatre out to people, but yes it’s a challenge and it’s a big worry because there’s so much uncertainty and unknown”
This year as the Lowry is unable to celebrate their 20th Anniversary. They have reflected on some of their many successes over the past 20 years on social media.
