In the words of actor Andrew Scott's Moriaty, did you miss me? Ha ha I've been away! Our youngest's Graduation was a wonderful occasion at The Lowry.
As the name suggests, this Arts Centre, which opened in 2000, not only holds the largest public collection of L. S. Lowry's artwork but also has theatres, restaurant, cafés and meeting areas. Triangular in shape, the building looks a bit like a ship on the water at Salford Quays not far from Media City and also Manchester United's Trafford stadium. It was designed by Michael Wilford and Architects, here's a link with more information.
Inside it is very colourful. My previous blog post about the area has a few more photos.
I loved these woolly stools!
The theatre was the ideal spot for everyone to be proud of their youngsters. When it's not Graduation time, there is a wide variety of shows, including opera and ballet.
I have lots of other places to tell you about!
Cheerio for now.
