SIX The Lowry

The free exhibition – curated by The Lowry – is the first of its kind and is produced with the support of SIX and its creators Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss.

Discover this brand new exhibition

Queens will ask the question ‘What kind of Queen are you?’ and will start with a celebration of the hit musical, including for the first time in this country a display of all six iconic costumes from the show, alongside Toby and Lucy’s original notes, ideas, scribbles and Instagram photos of the first rehearsals. Also on display will be costume and set designs, scripts, behind-the-scenes films and fan art.

In SIX each of the Tudor Queens are turned into a pop star on stage, and in the exhibition their history as well as their contemporary music influences – from Adele to Beyoncé – will blend together, with lots of opportunities for visitors to sing, dance, play games and quizzes and even take suitably regal selfies.

The exhibition will also celebrate the Queens of every description that we pass in the street, those we work with, play with, we share our lives with and will feature new commissions from artists and photographers, including Manchester Instagram legend, The Mancorialist.

There will also be venue-wide free learning and engagement activities based around the Queens theme for the duration of the exhibition’s run, including arts & crafts, silent discos and dance workshops. For full details of what’s on offer during Queens, including live music performances and Queens-themed food and drink offerings please check the website.
