We have installed a new state-of-art security screening system at The Lowry. It uses AI technology to scan people in real time.


What do we do to keep you safe?

The Lowry operates a number of security measures, some that you can see and of course the ones you can’t. We work very closely with Greater Manchester Police and members of the security services to ensure our security procedures are up to date and following best practice.

Bags and luggage are not allowed in the galleries. Please use our cloakroom facilities to store your belongings – there is a £2 charge per item.

We takes the safety of our visitors very seriously, please cooperate fully with our security staff and support our team as they carry out their checks.

Security Checks

On entering The Lowry you will be screened by a state of the art security screening system that uses AI to scan visitors in real time. Don’t worry the system is safe for everyone, even if you have a medical condition, pacemaker or are pregnant. More safety information can be found on the Evolv website 

In order to assist our security team with the scanning process please follow these simple steps:

  1. Keep your bags and coats on your person, there is no need to take items from your pockets, unless instructed to do so by our security team.
  2. Simply walk straight through the screening system.
  3. Our security team may request you undertake a further search, in which case you will be advised to head to a search table for this to be facilitated.

For your safety and the safety of our visitors security screening is a condition of entry to The Lowry,
