Trinity Theatre

  • About
    Trinity is a 300 seat theatre in the heart of Tunbridge Wells.

    A converted church, Trinity is fast becoming a key contributor to the vitality of the town, offering an imaginative and wide range of entertainment.Trinity's funders include Tunbridge Wells Borough Council, Kent County Council, and The Arts Council of England.

    The first two week season was launched in the summer of 1982. In 1983 there were shows during nine months of the year. Tunbridge Wells Borough Council regarded the growing enterprise with favour and gave £15,000 towards conversion of the building. Heating was installed, and the gallery was opened, concentrating on regular exhibitions by contemporary professional artists. In 1984 a bar licence was granted. South East Arts (now The Arts Council of England South East) awarded Trinity a grant of £10,000 towards operational costs. The Arts Centre was run entirely by volunteers and finances were balanced to secure the future of Trinity.
    Maintenance and restoration of the building remains a demanding responsibility. In 2000 the building was surrounded by scaffolding whilst work was carried out on the stained glass windows as well as the clock tower, this work was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
    An application was made to the National Lottery in October 1995, for £600,000 worth of internal improvements including a new computerised box office, new seats throughout, and a new access ramp for wheelchair users. The grant was approved in March 1996, and Trinity reopened in October 1996: 10,000 people came through the doors in the first two weeks.
