Young Theatre Makers

Family Activities

For 0 – 11 years

We love to welcome families to The Lowry and offer a weekly programme of creative activities for children of all ages and their parents as well as a range of performances and exhibitions for young audiences.

These weekly activities include First Steps, our weekly Early Years dance class for children aged 2-4 and Saturday Playhouse, our weekly art workshop for families which is completely free every week in our Galleries, led by a professional artist.

If you have any questions about taking part or if you need any support to access our programmes please email

The Booths Family Charity Scheme

The Lowry, in association with The Booth Charities, is offering families in Salford the opportunity to see two live theatre performances at The Lowry for free.

We would like to hear from families of children with disabilities, or additional needs, who may have found it difficult to visit and experience live theatre. 

Quote from 2015-16 participant – “Thank you so much for a lovely  trip to see We’re Going On A Bear Hunt! The cast were wonderful & Ricardo loved meeting them after the performance, that was a real treat for him. Sincere thanks to you all for making our day so enjoyable”.
