Take a risk - pay what you decide

Take A Risk

Welcome to Pay What You Decide

Welcome to The Lowry – a safe space for those who think dangerously.

Welcome to a season of world-class work from some of the very best companies you may never have heard of before.

Welcome to a diary packed full of staggering, form-defying, genre-warping, convention-threatening, full-on cutting edge, contemporary-with-no-apology, take-a-punt-worthy work for the most curious of cultural cats.

How does it work?

There’s no need to pay…well not in advance anyway! 

The Lowry is at the forefront of presenting some of UK’s most pioneering, genre-bending new performance and we would like to share it with you. Pay What You Decide not only allows you to pay what you can afford, rather than a fixed ticket price, but removes the financial risk of buying a ticket for a show without knowing if you will enjoy it or not. All money collected will help us pay the artists who have performed and allow them to continue creating new and exciting work.

We currently have two PWYD shows available to whet your appetite – WTF Wednesday which is a series of evenings for the compulsively curious featuring frontrunners from the frontiers of contemporary theatre making, and Digital programme.
