  • Something a bit different
Every wondered what lies behind the Lyric stage’s curtain? Take a tour around the areas usually off limits to the general public and find out what makes a working theatre tick. You’ll see dressing rooms, see the stage through the eyes of a technician and have the chance to stand on the biggest theatre stage in England outside of London!

Please note: You cannot wear high heeled shoes during the tour. 
Parts of the tour are unsuitable for those with a fear of heights however these sections can be diverted so please tell your tour guide at the time.
The first half of the tour (dressing rooms, scene dock, Lyric stage) is step-free. The second-half of the tour (fly tower, lighting rigs) will require climbing of stairs.
Don't forget to pick up a copy of The Lowry's Guide Book from The Shop as a souvenir from your day - a bargain at £4.
