Love it
Jun 2021 • Couples
We went to see Jimny Carr last night. It was fantastic. Staff were really friendly and professional. Our temperature was taken and social distancing rules were upheld. The theatre was very clean. The other downside was the expensive drink prices, but it didn't effect our enjoyment. Fab show

Enjoyed our visit to the gallery - some fantastic pictures by local people taken/painted during lockdown as well as works by Lowry. A lovely couple of hours :-)

Loved our visit to the Lowry. The team took the cleanliness seriously but did it in such a friendly way it didn't put you off. The exhibitions were both excellent and engaged all of us throughout . Thanks to the well informed guide who explained Going To The Match to us. Thoroughly recommended. 🧡

C-O-N-T-A-C-T Immersive Theatre Experience - Amazing!
Visited Yesterday late afternoon, a last minute find whilst surfing the internet for things to do!

An interesting, intriguing, entertaining and thought provoking insight into a woman's thoughts. Struggling with her personal issues acted out, you are guided by an audio which plays on the C-O-N-T-A-C-T app (you would ideally download prior to arrival). Listening to her inner voice trying to comprehend how to live her life with her deep dark hidden thoughts.

Take your own headphones and a reliable smart phone, and you're immersed into a 3D drama, 50 minutes of following this female and her mind set, her feelings and emotions.
Please note this is outdoors and totally Covid compliant, so it does get cold, ensure you wrap up!

The 2 actors Chloe Gentles and Cellan Scott were awesome, sooo TALENTED and fantastic to watch! Thank you for the fabulous performance!

The guide/stage manager Katy was down to earth, informative, friendly, resourceful and very helpful!

This is only on for a few more weeks so don't miss out on this unique opportunity to experience outdoor theatre.... and more importantly support the work that has been created for actors during the drought caused by the pandemic!

Defo recommend! *****
Attended with my hubby!
:)

Outdoor live theatre
Aug 2020 • Solo
Had fun if a little wet and windy at the theatre today. Hansel and Gretel beautifully performed and sung. The Sandman, witch and mother were both delightfully played by professional artists. Enjoyed the whole outdoor experience and it was fabulous to go to live theatre after such a long break .
