Roll Up! Roll Up! TestBash Manchester is coming to town!

TestBash is back at The Lowry Theatre Manchester on the 1st of October, for its 5th year, alongside Test.bash(); and it will be bigger and better than ever! We had to put the lions jumping through rings of fire on hold due to Health and Safety reasons, but we’ll still have jaw-dropping workshops and training and extraordinary feats of tech-defying talks!

Our Box Office is open with the all-new Blind Bird tickets, and for all of you wishing to join as one of our headline acts… the auditions are open! We are also looking for supporting acts. It’s going to be one hell of a show!

Auditions are open!

We are looking for our headline acts, so, if you want to perform at TestBash Manchester submit via our continuous call for papers (CCFP). We are looking for 30-minute talks and half-day interactive workshops on all things testing. As with all Ministry of Testing events, your travel and accommodation are covered, see the CCFP link for more details. Plus with it being TestBash if you’re looking stage-left or stage-right you’ll see a bunch of friendly faces cheering you on.
Deadline to audition is the 22nd of February.

Blind Bird tickets

Box Office is now opened with a very limited number of super discounted Blind Bird tickets. With the Blind Bird tickets, you’ll get priority on your workshops selection and a great discount! As you know, you’re in for a great show, so reserve your seat today. Final curtain call for these showstoppers is 1st April, or until they are all gone, so register below.

Workshops and Training will be revealed soon, so make sure you subscribe to the launch list to be the first to hear all about them!


We’ll have plenty of refreshments on hand, but also this year we are debuting our Community Space at TestBash Manchester. The community space will provide the opportunity to meet the cast and mingle with fellow attendees. You’ll be able to meet the speakers during dedicated AMA slots and ask them questions about their talks, challenge yourself with testing activities and even become the star of a future podcast.
