Adverse Weather

Should we see adverse weather on the day of any performance at The Lowry, the show will continue as normal. Due to the nature of our agreements with the producers who bring their shows to The Lowry, we are not able to offer any refunds or ticket exchanges outside of our normal policy due to adverse weather.

Admittance to the theatre

The Lowry reserves the right to refuse admittance to any patron, including unaccompanied minors.

For family and children’s shows where there is a ‘babes in arms’ policy in place, patrons will be issued with a complimentary ticket for any under 2-year olds – who will be required to sit on the knee of a paying adult.

If the production does not have a specific babes in arms policy, children under two will not be admitted to any performance.

Should the babe-in-arms become restless and cause a disturbance, the parent/guardian will be requested to leave the auditorium with the child. We reserve the right to not re-admit.
Pushchairs may be stored free of charge in our cloakroom, or at The Quays Theatre, during performances. We cannot allow pushchairs, prams or baby car seats inside the theatre. 

Baby changing facilities are available throughout the building – please ask a member of staff for assistance. A limited number of booster seats are available on a first come, first served basis. Booster seats can only be used in the Stalls of both The Lyric and Quays Theatres.

The management reserves the right to make alterations to the advertised cast and programme; not to admit latecomers until the interval; to refuse admission; to provide alternative seats to those purchased of the same or greater value.

Major Local Events

The Lowry is a proud neighbour to Manchester United, however on match days traffic can be much heavier in and around Salford Quays. Keep up to date with fixtures at Manchester United and Manchester City and if you are travelling to The Lowry on a match day, leave plenty of time for your journey.
