The Lowry will open its doors from 10AM until 5PM on September 1 for another day of free activities that enable visitors of all ages to explore the venue.

In 2018, The Lowry saw more than 7,000 people attend their open day. Throughout the day, visitors were able to take part in a range of workshops, drop-in activities, backstage tours and performances.

Opportunities to get involved this year will include stand-up comedy masterclasses, Lowry-inspired art workshops and dance classes hosted by Matthew Bourne's New Adventures and Rambert.

Due to overwhelming demand in previous years, visitors will also be pleased to see the return of backstage tours and workshops in lighting and sound.

The range of activities will also spill out of the building and onto the plaza as visitors will be able to watch live performances from Charmaine Childs: The Strong Lady, play large outdoor games or take a boat trip around the Quays.

All activities and events are free. Visitors can book places online for some of the workshops in advance.
