Box Office

The Plaza box office is open at the following times:

Monday to Friday – 10.00am to 6.00pm
Saturday – 10.00am to 4.00pm
Sunday and Bank Holidays – Open 1 hour prior to a show, otherwise closed

On evening performance days we are open for 30 minutes after the performance start time. Payment can be made over the counter with cash, cheque, postal order or credit / debit card.

You can also book over the telephone using your card details. Please have your card ready when phoning the booking line 0161 477 7779 (booking fee applies). When phoning the box office, please be patient – we are sometimes busy and calls are answered in strict rotation and tickets booked will be posted at a cost of £2.00 to cover postage – only tickets purchased 3 days prior to a performance can be collected from the Plaza Central Box Office

Prices quoted in season brochures and promotional literature are for tickets booked in person at The Central Box Office only and all booking line and web site purchases are subject to booking fees.


Online Booking

For your convenience The Plaza offers an on line booking service through our colleagues at Quay Tickets. Quay Tickets is The Lowry’s ticket agency offering tickets for events at venues in Manchester and beyond. Quay Tickets offers competitive booking fees, an easy to navigate site and a professional personal ticketing service. The booking fees from Quay Tickets are not profits for shareholders and will contribute directly towards The Lowry’s charitable and artistic objectives.

Many shows offer discounts for senior citizens (guests aged 65 years or over), students, children (aged 1 to 16 years of age) and the unemployed on the production of relevant proof of ID. Always ask the box office at the time of booking as we cannot discount on tickets already purchased. Only one concession is available per ticket.

Refunds & Exchanges

We regret that we can not refund or exchange tickets. The box office can try to re-sell them subject to a £1 per ticket exchange fee, on the understanding that the sale of the Plaza’s own available seats takes priority.
