The Quays Theatre, Salford
The Quays Theatre, Salford
Salford Quays is the name given to the area of Salford which was previously the site of Manchester Docks, it became one of the first and largest urban regeneration projects in the United Kingdom following the closure of the dockyards in 1982.

The Lowry Centre stands at the end of what was Pier 8. It opened in 2000 and houses two theatres, studio spaces and a large gallery space. There are cafes, bars and a restaurant at the south-western end of the building. This view is looking across the canal from Trafford Wharf.

The theatre at this end of the building is called "Quays Theatre" which is the smaller of the two theatres in the centre; the other one is "Lyric Theatre".
