Redevelopment plans for the Trinity Centre
Trinity Community Arts are working on plans to carry out essential redevelopment works to the Trinity Centre. The works will allow us to provide an increased range of services, making the space more accessible, affordable and appropriate for our diverse communities.
We have secured a Big Lottery grant to invest in the development of upstairs hall space, to include installing multi-purpose lighting, sprung wooden floor and heating to improve accessibility and increase availability of quality dance, performance and community space in the area. We will also be making significant improvements to the external grounds, with better signs and layout to improve accessibility.
Speaking about the recently awarded Big Lottery grant, Councillor Simon Cook, Cabinet Member for Culture and Sport, said: "Trinity is a stunning local landmark, and a beautiful space, but with a legacy of high maintenance and difficult problems typical of very old and beautiful churches. Everyone involved has shown remarkable creativity in conceiving new uses and activities."
Works funded by Big Lottery Fund are planned to take place from June 2013 and works will be phased across the year in order to ensure the Centre remains open. We plan to complete the works and celebrate with a launch event in January 2014. Details of the planned works can be downloaded by clicking here.
