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”.
