Who are we?
Trinity Centre is a community arts centre in East Bristol. Our mission is to empower communities through arts and make sure everyone has the opportunity to access and shape arts and culture in Bristol.
Trinity, a Grade II* Listed Building, is a much-loved historic landmark, a cultural hub for East Bristol and one of the city's few remaining independent live-music venues.
Misfits Theatre Company perform their annual showcase at Trinity.
What we are doing?
We are raising £5000 to install secondary solar panels and solar battery storage.
Why are we doing it?
Following our 2015 Green Pledge to improve sustainability and reduce our environmental impact we successfully installed solar panels in 2015. Then, with the introduction of a cup deposit scheme in 2018, we reduced our single-use plastic waste by 4-5 tonnes year.
Securing the funds to install secondary Solar PV alongside solar battery storage will see a reduction in the use of energy from non-sustainable sources and a significant reduction in energy bills - enabling us to invest more into our charitable activities.
How would it work?
Why we need your help:
Community activity makes up over 60% of programming at Trinity, supported through free/subsided hire, enabling communities like Gerry’s Attic a weekly dance group for the over 55’s and The Rhythm of the Night a monthly club-night for adults with learning difficulties all find happiness and opportunity here.
Gerry's Attic perform during Full Bloom, a festival of dance for and by older people.
“I’m 75 and still dancing – this means so much in term of fitness, socialising and even mental fitness. This wouldn’t be possible without Trinity – who provide amazing spaces for classes” Adrian, participant Gerry’s Attic
Hype Dance juniors perform during Harbour Festival on the Trinity Presents Stage. Hype Dance have been meeting weekly at Trinity for over a decade and are supported through Trinity's Community Kickstart scheme.
Local children take part in a vocal looping workshop during Trinity's free community garden party.
M&S Energy Community Fund Competition
