The Lowry Centre Trust

The Lowry uses visual and performing arts to enrich people’s lives. We present audiences with a diverse programme of theatre, opera, musicals, dance, music, comedy and visual art as well as events and activities to expand the horizons of audiences and artists alike. At the heart of our work is a commitment to our local communities and young people. Tapping into the work on our stages and in our galleries, we offer thousands of free creative participation opportunities each year.

Founded 1998

  • Mission statement

    Our mission is that The Lowry will be a world-class arts centre based at the core of the region’s creative and cultural quarter. These world-class ambitions will sit comfortably with our commitments to celebrating the unique heritage of this location and to putting communities and people at the heart of all that we do.
