Studio Salford

Get Involved!


We're always looking for Front of House Volunteers. If you're interested, please contact FoH coordinator Gayle Hare.

Want to stage your play here?

We have a set procedure for proposals to stage work at Studio Salford:
First of all, please make sure your production is no longer than 2 hours (including any intervals) and that you are not aiming at an audience of under 18's - we operate from a pub! If this is OK, next thing you need to do is download the proposals application document, fill it in and email it in along with an electronic version of your script backed up with:

  • A loose idea of when you would like the production to be staged.
  • A brief about your company, its ethos, backlog of work etc. and / or a similar brief about yourself (min 50 words)
  • A brief of your directorial intentions with the piece in question (one side of A4 at least) - you may want to insert extra information at certain points within your script.
  • Anything else you think may inform and back up your proposal to a team of decision makers who don't know you and need to evaluate your proposal based purely on the information you have given. This could be in the form of past press releases, any video or audio footage, publicity from past productions or ideas for the production you are thinking of staging. Anything really that you think would help.

Once you have all this in place, email it to (What does this email address mean?).

Artists / graphic designers

We are looking for artists to collaborate with our publicity including posters & flyers, underground campaigns etc. We have little money at the moment, but this could be an excellent way to broaden your portfolio.
Please get in touch.


Studio Salford is an entirely voluntarily led & run organisation consisting of many volunteers. The majority of productions going on at the studio do so on a profit-share basis only. We have an office to pay for, the performance space to pay for and constant strains on office & technical equipment.

Studio Salford's In-House Companies also like to go "Out & About", taking shows developed here and showing them at various festivals around the country, further informing the wider public of our existence and the work of everyone involved. This can sometimes put a strain on our companies' personal finances.

If you would like to donate anything to Studio Salford please send us a message here, or email funding (What does this email address mean?). Please be sure to tell us if you would like to help fund:
Technical Equipment
Office Equipment & Admin
In-House Companies whilst "Out & About"
Office Rent
Performance Space Rent
Rehearsal Space Rent
No preference

If you are from an organisation which is interested in sponsoring Studio Salford, please let us know this and we will arrange a meeting.

Cheques should be made out to "Studio Salford" and sent to: Funding, Studio Salford, The King's Arms, , Salford , or you can pop it into an envelope addressed to "Funding, Studio Salford" and drop it behind the bar. You can also hand any donations over at the Box Office whenever we have a production on.
