What is a patron?

Patrons champion the award-winning, life-changing creative work we do in our communities whilst getting closer to the action!

Our Lowry Patrons champion the award-winning, life-changing creative work we do in our communities, they support opportunities for some of the most vulnerable children and young people in our city and ultimately create a better future for them.

From £250 per year, you’ll get closer to the world we bring to our audiences, joining a group of strong, bold and enterprising people who benefit from first hand experiences of what their donations make possible.

In return, patrons enjoy exclusive behind-the-scenes access to our programme, tickets throughout the year, access to our supporters’ lounge, the Quay Club, and an exciting calendar of exclusive events.

For more information and to join as a patron, please contact Lee Pringle.

“We are passionate supporters of The Lowry because it is so much more than an arts venue. We are warmly welcomed by curators, volunteers and staff, and feel privileged to not only be involved in such an inclusive organisation but also part of The Lowry family.” Allan and Jo Melzack, Patrons
