I hired the hexagon room for my birthday party, and would highly recommend it. The staff were great, both in the planning of the event and in managing it on the night. Everyone was really flexible and accommodating, and it worked brilliantly.

Went to Jane McDonald concert and was very impressed with the lowry as a venue. Very stylish modern exterior and interior. Excellent toilet facilities and helpful friendly staff. Very comfortable seating and good acoustics.

Absolutely fantastic. Just good old fashioned slap stick for all the family. My face and sides hurt because I was laughing so much. Would highly recommend.

I've been here many times now and each visit is as pleasant as the last. They have varied shows and the theatre itself is always clean and tidy with the most helpful staff :)

We were sat near the back of the stalls. Good view though I suggest the seating needs to be more sloped. Parking is not cheap. passionate helpful staff ensure you will have a good time

I did see Chitty Chitty Bang Bang here. The theatre looks nice, the show was great and the seats are well. During the pause, we had to find the right bar to pay our beers with a card.

Lovely location, staff were very helpful and very friendly. The seats were very comfy, toilets were very clean. Sound quality was very good. Perfect place to hold this sort of entertainment event. Hopefully will hold this event again next year will definitely come again.

Get the tram to Media City and walk across. It's a five minute walk, at most.
