Thorny Summer Party

Landing in the centre of pride week, full scale spectacle of provocative local performances and star guests from other galaxies.

After a long hibernation, the clouds are clearing and Thorny are back to announce their 2019 summer party! Following last year's sold-out event at Thekla, Thorny continue on our nomadic journey to a new home at Bristol's beloved Trinity Centre.

Reunite with Thorny at a time when safe spaces to come together are more scarce and necessary than ever before. Landing in the centre of Pride week, Thorny return with a full-scale spectacle of provocative local performance and star guests from other galaxies.


Tami T makes dancable electronic pop music with explicit romantic lyrics. She recently released her debut album High Pitched and Moist and her music has been featured in the film Something Must Break and in the Norwegian TV series Skam.

Rebekah Ubuntu is a multidisciplinary sound artist whose creative and scholarly practices explore futurity, rebellion, gender, transfeminism and queerness through performance, live art, voice, installation, text and video.

Lasana Shabazz is a performance artist, writer and director whose work incorporates theatre, dance, spoken word, visual art. They work in art galleries, theatres, arts festivals, museums, educational institutions black, queer and QTIPOC art spaces internationally.


Genderqueer femme performer and art maker who exclusively uses they/them pronouns but often gets misgendered on stage. Cool Dad is the best leather daddy in town, but isn't allowed into gay spaces because of his boobs.

Tom Marshman is a theatre maker whose practice honours the art of conversation and creates spaces that enable people to share their stories. We're thrilled that Tom is gracing the Thorny stage once again in his unique and captivating way!

Celebrating otherness, Bristol based producer E B U casts a universe of her own both sonically and visually. With the release of her debut album ‘Hinge’ on NoCorner, she lures you in with her haunting sound self-titled as 'Swamp Pop'.

Bristol's dreamiest post punk trio played the first ever Thorny night back in 2015! Since then they've toured the UK, released an EP and recently two new singles and a video. They're marking their return by opening the show!

Pierre & Baby are a queer performance duo based in London. Consisting of Peter Babbage & Luke Bafico; they began working together in 2017, with the aim to create work that reflects their own experiences. They present achilles, a hedonistic, hyper-sexualised visual dance mashup exploring the relentless pressure to be desirable in queer club spaces.

+ DJ set from IFEOLUWA!
