The Trinity Centre

The Trinity Centre

Converted church where community centre meets venue.


Set in a converted Grade II* listed former church in East Bristol, the Trinity Centre has been a key part of Bristol’s thriving music scene since the 1970s.

Trinity has hosted many of Bristol’s major musical movements, such as dub, ska, jungle, and the Bristol Sound, with renowned artists like Joy Division, The Specials, Prodigy, and Public Enemy gracing its stage.

Trinity has remained one of Bristol’s last independent venues, keeping true to its heritage as a soundsystem venue by hosting local regulars such as Teachings in Dub, Sofa Sound and Timedance, as well as platforming the best local talent from the city alongside regular live music, theatre, dance, and community events.

Since 2004, Trinity has been a successful multi-arts venue and community arts centre, with a mission to empower the local community with the arts and ensure that everyone has the opportunity to access and shape arts and culture in Bristol through outreach programmes, workshops and regular classes.
