Summer in Review

by <object object at 0x7f18eb81c580> last modified 01/11/2022 12:22 PM


While we're all sad that summer is winding down, we thought this would be the perfect opportunity to take a minute to reflect on some of the amazing arts and music events that’ve happened at Trinity over the last few months. Read on to learn more about our highlights from an amazing summer of activities.

Garden Party

Trinity's annual Garden Party returned this summer for the first time since 2019 and it was such a pleasure to welcome you all back to one of our flagship events for the season.

This year, we were able to bring a great programme of artists from Bristol and beyond to perform in The Den, including LCYYemztlk and more. Alongside our music offering, we also hosted a range of workshops including drumming and circus skills, Young Musicians takeover of the main stage, poetry and heritage activities in the Graffiti Room, as well as a whole load of food and craft stalls from local businesses.

We had a great time at May's Garden Party and it seemed like you all did too - over 4000 people attended on the day and we managed to raise £4500 in donations so that we can continue to offer events like Garden Party to our amazing local community.

The Den

We launched The Den, our new outdoor space for platforming emerging talent. Joining forces with some of the best promoters and talent developments agencies in the South West we welcomed Bristol poetry collective Raise The Bar, family friendly day raves from female led DJ collective Peachin' and Club Djembe.

Bristol Harbour Festival

Trinity took to the stage at Bristol Harbour Fest 2022, hosting Bristol Dances in Millennium Square. Over the weekend we showcased the breadth of dance in the city from Irish Dancing to Bharathnatyam Dance to Voguing alongside performances from award-winning dance troupes, HYPE and Miss Daisy Dance Class.

Big Tent

As part of Radix Big Tent Ideas Festival, Trinity joined forces with Bristol DIY Arts Network to shine a light on Bristol’s diverse and rich cultural offering by inviting cultural leaders in the city to take part in keynotes and panel discussions exploring the role of culture in driving change in the city and what ‘City of Culture’ means for an independently creative city like Bristol.

Bristol Ball

We were honoured to host Bristol’s first official Vouge Ball at Trinity this summer with The Bristol Ball. Originating in Harlem in the 1920s, Ballroom culture provides a safe space for LGBTQIA+ people to express themselves through dance, music and fashion. It was great to be able to host a sold-out Vogue Ball at Trinity and be a part of this ongoing Ballroom culture.


We'll be celebrating the end of summer this Sunday (18 Sep) at Garden Party: Revolution Sounds, our second Garden Party of 2022, a free, community party that will bring together some of the best arts activists, covering music, sound, poetry, art and performance.
