Trinity Centre ready to welcome back live music fans with new outdoor venue

Posted on: 16 Sep 2020

The beloved BS2 venue will host a series of weekend events in its historic gardens this autumn. 


Big news incoming: Trinity Centre is ready to welcome back live music fans with a new series of socially distant events.


With the help of a specially erected tent in its grounds, the former church in St Jude's will run weekend events throughout the autumn, complete food, drink and table service. 


The Trinity Presents: Garden Sessions series kicks off on Friday 16 October with three seated gigs taking place across the weekend. 

Here's what you need to know. 



Who is performing? 


Opening the series on 16 October is experimental jazz trio Waldo's Gift, with an early evening gig.


Named among Giles Peterson's 2020 Ones to Watch, Waldo's Gift gained cult status in Bristol thanks to their improvisatory residency at The Gallimaufry.


On Saturday 17 October, Livity Sound's Danielle and Hodge will perform two DJ sets, one during the afternoon (from 13:30 to 16:30) and another in the evening (from 18:00 to 21:00). 


While Hodge's acclaimed album Shadows In Blue came out earlier this year, Danielle has performed in some of the world's best clubs, like Berlin's Griessmühle and fabric in London. 


Rounding up the weekend is DJ Neyo, Dancehall Generals, DJ Wally and DJ Simba from Afrobeats Fridays.


Inspired by the new wave music genre taking over nightlife in cities like Bristol and London, Afrobeat Fridays is a party founded by DJ Neyo.


Like the Livity Sound crew, they'll be performing two sets – one in the afternoon and one in the evening.

How will it work?


Each event will be hosted outside, in a specially erected tent.


To get entry to an event, you'll need to book a table. Tables are available to purchase now on the Trinity website and can accommodate up to six people.


Guests can choose their table on arrival, but to minimise risk, they'll be asked to stick it during an event. 


Each event will run with table service, with food and drink orders to be made through Love My Local.


All attendees will be required to complete a Track and Trace form before accessing the venue, with information on how to do this to be sent with ticket confirmations.
