Legendary music venue - Come and be part of the legend and host your artists in one of the most iconic spaces and prominent venues in the South West

The Trinity Centre has hosted major musical events since 1976 and is recognised as the birthplace of 'the Bristol Sound'. Originally covenanted to the African-Caribbean Community Enterprise Group, the Trinity Centre has since been a multicultural community venue with a strong music presence, hosting cutting-edge shows - from local legends Massive Attack to international artists Public Enemy.

As many of Britain's key music venues are being swallowed up by large organisations, the Trinity Centre is one of the few remaining independent music venues in the UK, programming a calendar of music that is both affordable and relevant to the local and wider communities of Bristol.

Trinity's L'Acoustics PA System is a favourite on sound specifications for national and international touring artists

We want to make sure that everyone has the opportunity to access high-quality arts and culture in Bristol. Prior to the installation, expensive PA hire costs restricted the abilities of local groups and promoters from staging events at the centre. Our L'Acoustics PA System installation means that we can better support diverse arts in the city.

"Some of the best gigs I've ever been to in Bristol have been at the Trinity and I would love that to continue. Great bands come and the performances can be really intimate. From local balkan folk music to Andrew Bird...wonderful" Amy, gig-goer, 2012

"With the Gorillaz playing a similar show last year, the Trinity would appear to be becoming the choice for bands that would otherwise be too big to play a city that still doesn't have an arena" Duran Duran rehearsal gig review, Bristol Evening Post, 2011
