10th Birthday Party

Songs from the shows to celebrate 10 years of making a noise

It’s Middle Child’s 10th birthday – so we’re throwing a big old party!

We’ll be taking over Social on Humber Street to celebrate ten years of making a noise, featuring songs and scenes from past shows, a fundraising raffle, (short) speeches and tunes from the Make Noise Collective DJs.

Shows to get the one night-only treatment – if our performers can remember the notes and lines – include The Canary and the Crow, we used to be closer than this, Us Against Whatever, All We Ever Wanted Was Everything, I Hate Alone, Weekend Rockstars, Cinderella and Apples. 

There will also be Neapolitan-style pizza from Costanza’s available throughout the night, to keep your hips and feet fuelled for a night of dancing.

So bust out your favourite threads, wear whatever makes you feel good and join us to make a toast to another decade of Middle Child!


This production is not socially distanced. Please see our FAQs for more information about the measures we are taking around Covid-19, including our cancellation policy.

BSL interpretation

The evening will be BSL-interpreted by Dave Wycherley.


Costanza’s Pizza, located inside Social, will be selling homemade Neapolitan-style pizza until 9pm.


  • Doors: 7pm
  • Performance and raffle: 7.30pm-10.30pm, including two 20 minute intervals
  • DJs: 10.30pm until midnight


Age guidance: 18+. Contains strong language, drug references, depictions of sex, violence, racism, grief, anxiety and Covid-19.

This performance is relaxed, meaning that noise and movement is welcome during the show, but does include loud, amplified music.
