Trinity CentreTrinity Road, Bristol BS2 0NW
Based in the Trinity Centre, this much-loved historic landmark is a cultural hub for East Bristol and one of the city’s few remaining independent live-music venues, used by over 60,000 people each year.
The Trinity Centre has hosted major musical events since 1976 and is recognised as the birthplace of ‘the Bristol Sound’. Originally covenanted to the African-Caribbean Community Enterprise Group, the Trinity Centre has since been a multicultural community venue with a strong music presence, hosting cutting-edge shows – from local legends Massive Attack to international artists Public Enemy.
As many of Britain’s key music venues are being swallowed up by large organisations, the Trinity Centre is one of the few remaining independent music venues in the UK, programming a calendar of music that is both affordable and relevant to the local and wider communities of Bristol.
