Your thoughts and memories

It was a pleasure to see this exhibition as it brought back memories of her help in visiting our budding ballet school and company in “Iran” in the 60’s and supplying us with ballet teachers.

This is a very special exhibition. We especially loved the replica of Margot Fonteyn’s dressing room .The costumes are exquisite and it was wonderful to see these worn by people we had seen dance and known as icons. I really hope to be back!

Fantastic exhibition with so much to see. Thoroughly enjoyable and I feel privileged to have seen some of the wonderful artefacts, especially the costumes, worn by people who are a true inspiration to me. Thank you!

A big thank you to all who have taken part in The Lowry’s Twelve Trailers of Christmas and good luck!

We’ll be announcing all the winners tomorrow so look out for the results!
