Applications to take part in this year's BeScene zone are now open and we expect places to be a hot ticket so act quickly and get that application in today!

Founding member of BeScene, PlastiQ is on the hunt for this years top talent!

The Be Scene Zone is the North East's biggest open stage for LGBTQIA+ Performers and this is your chance to be involved! Join us for a weekend of entertainment where you can show what you've got to a whole new audience.

Applications will close May 21st 2023

We asked PlastiQ why they think BeScene is important. "I think what we’ve done with BeScene is allowed a space completely free of judgement where members of our LGBTQIA+ community can show us what they’ve got on the North East’s biggest open stage".

"We’ve seen the BeScene zone applications increase year on year and I imagine this year will be the biggest year yet."

"With queer performers across the globe under fire, I think this is really the year to be loud be heard, and Be Scene."

Performer Baron LaVey from 2022's BeScene
