The Lowry is a spectacular home to the arts and entertainment with a wealth of activity under one roof!

Inside this magnificent building you will find two stunning theatres, The Lyric (the largest stage in England outside London) and the more intimate Quays, offering a variety of performance from ballet, drama, opera, comedy music and family entertainment.

The Lowry Galleries showcase changing exhibitions by one of Britain's best loved artists, LS Lowry, as well as paintings, sculpture and photography by artists of local, national and international renown.

With cafe's, a restaurant and gift shops all set against spectacular waterside views, there is something for everyone at The Lowry.

Kids love The Lowry, with its bright orange staircases, sloping blue floors and purple and glass walls but it also has lots of secret corners waiting to be discovered. With baby-changing, bottle and food-warming facilities, pushchair access, as well as gifts which will appeal to younger visitors in our shop – The Lowry caters for all your family needs.

Join a Family Building Tour on the last Sunday of every month and Bank Holiday Mondays at 10.30am and 11.30am, as well as the Saturday Playhouse workshop and Free Family Sundays, which take place every Saturday and Sunday all year round.

There are plenty of free activities available throughout the year in our Galleries. Have fun with Jack’s Activity Packs featuring Jack the Dog, The Lowry’s very own family mascot. You can also become an Art Detective, and enjoy our Family Corner, a dedicated space for the under 5’s.

Children's meals and lunch boxes come with a free Jack’s Colouring Pack to keep the whole family amused while you are eating, so why not make a whole day of it?
