Went to see WarHorse what a very good and moving portrayal about a young man and his horse excellent. We booked the vip package and had an absolutely lovely meal slideshow. Would definitely recommend eating at the Lowry. As for the show WarHorse absolutely excellent finishes soon so for anyone thinking of going get your tickets soon.

Easy parking and entry to the shopping centre with some unique and interesting shops. Good access to the theatre. The outlook over the canal and the lovely buildings is worth seeing on their own account.

We have been to this venue a number of times. Parking is quite expensive, toilets are far stretched but other than that, great productions and always a good night out with friends.
