The Lowry announces return of its hugely popular Open Day

The Lowry announces the return of its Open Day following the huge success of the event in 2017 and 2018. The venue will open its doors from 10am until 5pm on Sunday 1 September for a day of free activities that enable visitors of all ages to explore the venue in a completely new way.

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, back-stage tours and performances.

Opportunities to get involved this year will include stand up comedy masterclasses, Lowry inspired art workshops and dance classes hosted by renowned companies 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, join in bhangracise and 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. There will also be a limited number of places available for each ticketed event on the day, these will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

A timetable of events will be released and online booking opens on Tuesday 27 August via The Lowry’s website.
