Trinity Centre's Garden Sessions to return in May

Posted on: 20 Apr 2021

Tickets are on sale now for an opening weekend featuring Ishmael Ensemble, Batu and more.


The Trinity Centre are ready to relaunch their Garden Sessions series, set to welcome another selection of renowned local artists to a pop-up stage on the grounds of the iconic BS2 venue.


Kicking off with a launch weekend from 21 - 23 May, the latest Garden Sessions lineup features the innovative Ishmael Ensemble, world-renowned bass-driven DJ and producer Batu and an evening of Zimbabwean-Western fusion courtesy of Kutamba and True Strays.


Tickets for the opening performances are still available in limited numbers, and are expected to sell out well in advance - find out more and get yours here.



Taking place in a specially-constructed outdoor tent complex, the Trinity team are picking up where they left off in autumn 2020 with the return of their Garden Sessions series. 


Following on from the success of their original performances, which included forward-thinking jazz trio Waldo's Gift as well as respected Bristol-based DJs Hodge & Danielle, the series will once again be showcasing some of the city's top musical talent in May.


After opening afternoon and evening performances from the Ishmael Ensemble on Friday 21 May, Trinity will host a Timedance takeover featuring sets from Batu & Cando on Saturday 22.


Closing their opening weekend, Trinity will be welcoming high-energy Zimbabwean outfit Kutamba to perform live alongside True Strays on Sunday 23 May, mixing their love of traditional music with Western influences to create an infectious, rhythm-driven sound.


Tickets for Trinity's Garden Sessions Opening Weekend can be purchased in groups of up to six people, with prices starting at £42 (plus booking fee) per table.


Food and drinks will be served throughout the events, with a range of new measures in place to ensure the safety of attendees, performers and venue staff.
