Breaking Ground

  • Waterside 1 Waterside Plaza Sale, M33 7ZF UK (map)

Breaking Ground is our showcase of four of the region’s emerging and innovative theatre-makers, companies & performers as they break ground and give you a sneak preview of their current works-in-progress.

Expect an exciting evening of fun, bold and risk-taking work from a range of artists & companies – with a chance to for artists & audiences to feedback and contribute towards turning the projects into something really special!

At the end of the evening, you pay what you feel in return for your evening’s entertainment – booking is free but advised so make sure you don’t miss out!


A scratch night is a platform for artists, theatre-makers and performers to ‘test’ out their ideas in front of a live audience. Most often, the projects are works-in-progress and offer artists a chance to gain invaluable feedback which assist theatre-makers in the development of their piece.
