Thorny Summer Party 2019

— The Trinity Centre
Pre-Pride performance clubnight featuring queer artists from the local scene and across the UK
price: Tickets Below


Bristol's most provocative party of the summer is back at the iconic Trinity Centre!

Reunite with us at a time when safe spaces to come together are more scarce and necessary than ever before. Landing on Pride weekend, we've assembled a glittering line-up of local performance legends and star guests from other galaxies for a one-night spectacle. We're excited to see you there! ✨

QTIPOC taxis: please consider adding a £2 donation to your ticket price to help fund our taxi service! And if you're a person of colour who identifies as queer/trans/intersex, and would benefit from a free taxi home from the event, email us at info@wearethorny.com after booking your ticket to let us know.

Free tickets: we're also reserving a limited number of free tickets for people on a low income who want to come but can't afford to. Email info@wearethorny.com if you'd like one - you don't need to provide us with an explanation. Offered on a first-come-first-served basis.
