– What the heck is SCRiTCH? –
Scritch is an inclusive open mic and scratch night for cabaret and performance artists in Bristol and the South West. It’s a true melting pot of local talent with no two nights alike!

– Yeah but like, why though? –
Scritch’s aim is to promote and cultivate Bristol’s cabaret and performance art scene. It was born out of a need to address the lack of performance space available in Bristol for both complete beginners and more experienced performers that want to experiment with new material.

– Who’s behind SCRiTCH? –
SCRiTCH is produced and hosted by Oliver Assets, a local drag king and co-producer of one of Bristol’s most successful cabaret nights Brizzle Boiz! We are stage managed by the amazing Kurt Sovain and supported by a host of volunteer staff. If you’d like to get involved, please get in touch :).

– What kind of performances will there be? –
We will be accepting all kinds of performance art and cabaret acts. Some examples include drag, burlesque, circus, spoken word, dance, political performance art, stand up comedy, live singing, and lip syncing. You don’t have to be under the LGBTQIA+ umbrella to perform or attend, but we ask that allies please respect that this is intended as a safe space for the LGBTQIA+ community.

– Can I perform? –

Yes! Scritch is open to all levels of performers – from complete beginners looking to get their foot in the door to seasoned pro’s looking for somewhere to iron out experimental work. You will need to sign up in advance as spaces will be limited and agree to our house rules. Please fill out an application form and we’ll get back to you ASAP!


– How much does it cost? –
Entry is by donation to the performer tip jar – suggested donation is £3. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.

– Accessibility info –
