About the event

Get a sneak peek at the next hottest theatre, dance and circus shows, before they hit the Fringe, Off-West-End and Festival circuits.

So what exactly is a 'Scratch Night'?

A Scratch Night is an exciting chance to see snippits of brand new work, ranging from immersive theatre to circus acts and site-specific dance, before they become full length shows.

Scratch Nights rely on two way communication with the audience, and you'll have the unique opportunity to offer your thoughts and feedback at the end of the evening, either in writing or by having an informal chat with the artists at the bar!

This Scratch Night is a special BEYOND BORDERS Edition, celebrating the diversity of Greater London and the contribution of its migrant and refugee residents.
