In 1999, the Lowry Centre Trust received over £50million from a National Lottery grant in order to create an arts and entertainment facility. Located in the beautifully redeveloped docklands in Salford, the centre provides learning opportunities for the community and displays many exhibitions.
The Lottery has continued to fund various projects within the centre over the years including a series of activities and events designed to introduce more people to the arts. Not only does it provide learning opportunities for young people but there are workshops for adults and families too.
As well as meaning that more people in the North West can enjoy great arts and culture, the addition of The Lowry Centre had meant that Greater Manchester has benefitted from increased income from visitors too.
