Scratch is a modern variety night set up to give performers a platform to share their work. Scratch is also for Blackpool audiences to have a great night out.
If you’re looking for something to do in Blackpool, on the Fylde Coast or across Lancashire that’s a little bit different, then why not come along? We welcome locals as well as those on holiday here. Plus there are drinks offers for groups of 4+ who come together and even some free prizes available (don’t get too excited now!)
We curate each event to ensure we have the best variety night of performers. It’s not an open mic.
We also encourage audiences to give feedback so that acts can develop and gain in confidence.
Guaranteed great night out for all.
Don’t just take our word for it though…
We’ve had loads of support from the creative community in Blackpool; you can read write-ups here by the brilliant Steve Stroud, Garth Gratrix and Sean Payne and see some beautiful pictures by the talented CJGriffiths Phography or watch a great little promo vid by Ant Briscoe plus glorious artwork from Carlito Juanito art.
Oh and here’s some comments from audiences at previous Scratch variety nights:
“So much talent in one room.”
“Wow I feel I’ve had a glimpse into another world! Thank you!”
“FANTASTIC!!! Great writing and great performing. Funny, clever, politically charged LOVE IT!”
“Big-up the female comedian.”
“I like the seriousness and unpredictability. The issues were important and a lot of time taken.”
“Torn between giving feedback or keeping my eyes glued on the performance.”
Plus – if you’re an actor, poet, musician, singer, writer, comedian or any other kind of performance artist and are looking for a place to showcase your work, then please get in touch.
“Great experience, very supportive audience to perform in front of. Meeting other performers was good!”
Be sure you don’t miss out on seeing the brightest, best and, at times, most bizarre of emerging local talent.
