Creative expression for all

Trinity's mission is to empower communities through arts. We want to make sure everyone has the opportunity to access and shape arts and culture in Bristol.

We provide a progressive programme of live music and creative activities, as well as space for individuals to follow their passions and flexible facilities to suit any event or activity.

A centre for the people

Based in The Trinity Centre, this much-loved historic landmark is a cultural hub for the city, where people of all ages and backgrounds can come together.

In 2015/16 we were visited by 60,912 people across 398 activities and events.

We supported 136 groups and provided 3,356hrs of free or subsidised hall space, engaging 20,688 participants in community activities through the Trinity Community Initiative (TCI).

Diverse arts for a diverse city

We are a key arts provider, staging live music events and performances, contributing to urban regeneration and attracting audiences from Bristol and beyond.

With no religious or political affiliation, we are open and accessible to all, with a particular focus on providing services to Easton, Ashley, Lawrence Hill and Old Market.


Our vision is to become the UK's leading participatory arts centre

We aim to:

    to promote, maintain, and advance education through the presentation of creative and performing arts

    to advance the education of people of all ages in the creative and performing arts, information technology and life skills

    to preserve, protect and improve for the public benefit the Trinity Centre, formerly the Holy Trinity Church, and promote the heritage of this building

    to provide or assist in the provision of facilities in the interests of social welfare for recreation or other leisure time occupation of individuals who have need of such facilities by reason of their youth, age infirmity or disability, financial hardship or social circumstances with the object of improving their conditions of life

    to promote racial harmony by promoting equality of opportunity and good relations between persons of different racial and cultural identities and by encouraging the use of the Trinity Centre or other Trinity Arts Centre facilities for multicultural activities
