Attending Events

Box Office

The Plaza box office located at The Plaza on Mersey Square is open for bookings in person from Wednesdays to Saturdays 11.00am until 3.00pm and during other times tickets for forthcoming events can be purchased on line or by calling The Plaza Booking Line – 0161 477 7779 (Booking Fee Applies)

The on site Plaza Box Office will also be open for one hour prior to designated events.

Prices quoted in season brochures and promotional literature are for tickets booked in person at The Plaza 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.

Kindly note that to ensure the safe guarding of younger guests we require all children up to and including the age of 16 to have a responsible adult (over the age of 16) in attendance to accompany any children attending an event at The Plaza

Security Information

Your safety and security is important to us and The Plaza has a series of visible and discreet security measures in place 24 hours a day.

All bags may be subject to security searches prior to entry to the building. As such, we would ask that you refrain from bringing large bags to the venue as this could cause delays to your admittance.

We understand some patrons may need to bring medicines, medical equipment, or food and drink with them to the Plaza due to specific requirements, and are welcome to do so however on most events no Bottles, cans, glass containers, food items or alcohol purchased off the premises will be granted admission to the venue.

If you are attending a theatre or cinematic performance, please kindly ensure that you arrive with plenty of time for these security checks to take place, particularly so if you also have to collect tickets from the Box Office counter, which can be very busy prior to any event.

Our security measures are under constant review and we reserve the right to change arrangements at short notice.
