Scratch Tyne

All events are postponed until further notice. Please read our statement for more information.

Apples and Snakes’ longest-running artist development programme in the North-East.

From beginners looking for a confidence boost before their first open mic night, to experienced performers asking for honest feedback as they experiment with new work, Scratch Tyne is open to everyone.

Co-hosted by Sky Hawkins and Rowan McCabe, the format is simple: warm up together, explore a new performance technique together, then share work and give helpful feedback.
