Square Meal Review of The Lowry ?

These days, there’s plenty to catch the eye in Greater Manchester’s rejuvenated docklands, Salford Quays. But you still can’t miss the striking silhouette of The Lowry, the world-class visual and performing arts centre, rising from its waterside location. Its interiors are just as playful as the outer shell, with bold colours throughout. The centrepiece theatre is the Lyric, a 1,730-seater auditorium, while the Quays is smaller and features hydraulic seating, which changes the layout at the touch of a button. There are myriad studios and galleries – including a 100-capacity theatre and 350sq m exhibition space – but the circular Compass Room stands out. Located at the top of the building, this space has floor-to-ceiling windows and views of the surrounding canals. Bookers looking for meeting spaces will also find options throughout the building. For those arriving by car, there’s plenty of parking available.
