We are The Party Somewhere Else:

an independent collective of creatives who put on events promoting and showcasing creative performance work by women and non-binary artists - with your help, more people can come to the party.


Led by women - events for all!



Our goal is to create events that showcase work where women / non-binary artists have at least 50% of the creative agency. We define creative agency as the capacity of an artist to act of their own free will and have the power to make decisions about the work.

We work with people of all backgrounds and circumstances, and from any and all voices that represent the diverse spectrum of female and non-binary experience. Through the power of storytelling, theatre, live art and debate, The Party Somewhere Else wants to champion voices that represent the diverse spectrum of female and non-binary experience and give everyone a great night out.

We organised a sell-out scratch night in July 2017; created Open House events- where we open the doors up to anyone who is interested in learning, discussing and thinking about getting a range of female and non-binary voices on stage; ran a week-long festival in March 2018, and now we are back!

After the huge success of our first festival at Nottingham Playhouse last year, we are presenting another celebratory week of world-class theatre, dance, poetry, workshops, comedy and cabaret. Our stages and spaces will be exploding with excitement, energy and equality - fuelled by the power of story, theatre, art and debate. You can read lots more about us and stay up to date with our events on our social media channels and our website

"Major triumph with the first The Party Somewhere Else scratch night... Great night, let's see more of them. Notts needs you" - audience feedback

We came together through a shared frustration at the status quo and a drive to do something about it. We want all artists involved to be paid for their time, for sharing their skills, and for showcasing their work. We are very grateful to have received funding from Arts Council England, Centenary Cities Nottingham, Nottingham Playhouse and Nottingham Women's Centre to support our work. In 2019 we have extended our Outreach work to ensure as many people as possible are able to access our events. As part of this, we are funding shows, travel and childcare for members of our partner group Pamoja Women Together who are based at Nottinghamshire Refugee Forum; and have created a ticket fund for people who would like to attend our events but cannot afford a ticket. We've put some money in the pot, and you can too - by making a one-off donation or signing up to contribute monthly, you'll enable us to offer more free tickets to people who might not otherwise be able to attend. In other words, with your help, more people can come to the party. And we will love you forever for it, we promise. 

THANKS!
