Laboratory is our artist development hub supporting, nurturing and developing work locally, regionally and nationally. There are many ways in which we could support you and the work you want to make: from connecting you to an artistic community, to road-testing an idea at our quarterly scratch evenings, to in-depth research and development residencies. Check out the different Laboratory strands and get in touch with us, or just ask if you’re unsure what might be useful to you.

At Nuffield we want to inspire, encourage and collaborate with a range of theatre-makers to grow Southampton and Hampshire as a vibrant and supportive place to make theatre and enrich our local cultural ecology. This is what we try to achieve through Laboratory and we'd love to hear from anyone trying to do the same thing.
