We’ve got £5 and £10 tickets to give away to 16-25 year olds. For nearly all our shows. On every performance. Across seats at all prices. Yes. We’re telling you the truth.

We love theatre. We love watching it and we want you to watch it. We have a building full of world class drama, dance, music and comedy and it’s brilliant and we want you to see it! Why not be a bit adventurous and bring your mates along to some breathtaking circus or watch the highlights of the Edinburgh Festival in our Studio Theatre?  Or perhaps you've allways fancied trying out the opera or ballet, but never got round to it? Go on, we dare you.


So how do you get these tickets?

Well first, you need to be aged between 16 and 25.

Sign up to our mailing list. It's free, and we will send you an email every couple of weeks with the latest offers and opportunities.

Book your shows online. You can buy two tickets per performance.

The first time you book tickets you'll need to pick them up from our ticket office and bring along some ID to prove you're aged between 16 & 25. Walk through the doors of The Lowry and the ticket office is right beside you, you can’t miss it.

Once we've confirmed your age, you'll then be able to get your tickets posted out to you when you book in the future, if you prefer, rather than having to show ID at box office every time.

Enjoy the show!

We are thrilled that we can make seats available to 16–25 year olds as agreed with the touring companies who visit our venue. We hope you enjoy watching top quality theatre at £10 or less!
