Scratch Nights

Selected Fridays

Selected Fridays

In 2018 our feathery friend ‘Merv’ returns once more to rule the Butter Factory Theatre roost!

Galah Bar is a highly popular performance platform for local talent to test and tag evolving performance ideas in front of a live (and mostly sober) audience. Or just show off  generally. It’s a melting pot of indie music, opera, poetry, comedy, circus, drag – and a few acts that defy labeling. All Galah Bar events sold out in 2017, proving there’s a large, loving audience for home-grown talent!

Join us on selected Fridays throughout the year, as the Butter Factory precinct comes alive with the ‘scratch and squawk’ of some beautifully eclectic regional acts. Rub shoulders with neighbours over a delicious glass of Cofield wine or Bridge Road craft beer, nibble, gobble or graze on some tasty snacks, and soak up the talent-charged atmosphere!
