Under 26 scheme at The Lowry

Under 26

U26s pay less

The Lowry is currently closed, and unfortunately we are unable to accept new applications to join the Under 26 scheme at the moment.  Please email if you have an urgent enquiry.

Get stupidly cheap tickets to brilliant shows at The Lowry. We’re talking drama, musicals, circus, dance and much more for no more than £10! Why? Because we don’t want cash to be the reason you miss out on all the brilliant theatre we’ve got under our roof.

Be blown away by some breathtaking circus, watch the highlights of the Edinburgh Festival in our Studio or catch a West End hit in the vast Lyric theatre. Or perhaps you’ve always fancied trying out the opera or ballet but have never made it – well, now you can, for just £10!

How do I get these tickets?

Well first, you need to be aged between 18 and 25 (obviously).

If you tick that box, signup for free.

We will then send you an email every couple of weeks with the latest offers. You can book your shows online and can buy two tickets per performance. The first time you book tickets, you’ll need to pick them up from our box office and bring along some ID to prove you’re aged between 18 and 25. Once we’ve confirmed your age, you’ll then be able to get your tickets posted out to you when you book in the future, if you prefer, rather than having to show ID at box office every time.

Enjoy the show!


Where can I sit?

In a few cases some seats at the Under 26 price may be restricted view only, or limited to certain performances, but we try to keep this to a minimum.

How many tickets can I buy?

You can buy a maximum of 2 tickets per performance at the Under 26 rate. These tickets must be booked by the U26 member who will need to bring ID to prove their age when collecting their tickets at box office.

Can I bring someone with me who is over 26?

Yes. As long as the tickets have been booked and collected by the person who holds the U26 membership.

What ID do you accept?

When you collect your tickets from the box office, you’ll need to show some ID to prove your age. We accept a passport, driving licence, or card with the PASS logo.

How do I find out what shows have an Under 26 discount?

We’ll email you every couple of weeks with the current crop of offers – so keep an eye on your email!

I’m interested in a career in theatre…can I get some advice?
