Scratch that Itch

The ultimate late-night cabaret extravaganza with artists itching for an audience!

An electrifying evening where we celebrate the raw and unfiltered talent of artists who are eager to take our stage and scratch that creative itch.

Created & hosted by the sensational Laz Lightning, a Drag King extraordinaire fresh off the boat from Dalston, this open-call, work-in-progress cabaret night is bound to leave you exhilarated. Laz's magnetic presence and infectious energy will guide you through a night like no other.

But that's not all. As you step through our doors, you'll be greeted with a delightful surprise – FREE Turkish delight! It's just a taste of the many pleasures that await you inside.

Scratch That Itch is the place to be if you're seeking an evening of unapologetic artistry, unforgettable performances, and a vibrant atmosphere that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Come for the Turkish delight on the door and stay for the performances that will ignite your senses and leave you itching for more.
