Young Theatre Makers

Activities & Workshops

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

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 and courses for adults.
