With a little help from the Millennium Fund, the £60m Lowry Centre, designed by Michael Wilford and the late Sir James Stirling, is planned to open at Salford Quays in the old Manchester-Salford docklands at the turn of the century. The centre will offer a platform to both visual and performing arts and include a 1,650-seat auditorium, a 400-seat theatre, Britain's first "hands-on" gallery for children as well as a gallery displaying over 350 paintings by the Salford artist LS Lowry.
