Trinity is a charity and a 291 seat theatre and arts venue in the heart of Royal Tunbridge Wells set in a striking 19th century Decimus Burton designed grade II* listed building.

We host a wide range of diverse performances of drama, comedy, music, cinema, dance and live broadcasts of world class theatre, opera, and dance from around the world. Also we have a welcoming gallery space and a café-bar open throughout the day.

We are at our core a theatre which informs everything we do. We also are the only theatre in the area that produces and directs their own Christmas show – combining our in-house talent and expertise, with professionals both on stage and off, as well as local children who are given an unparalleled opportunity to work in a professional environment. The Stage in their review of Oliver! recognised this as ‘high-achieving, slick and well directed’.

We have built strong relationships with professional companies national and locally and recognise that we have a role in the community to support and encourage local actors, singers, musicians, directors, producers, etc. and have developed an Associate Artist initiative to further this aim.

Young people are a vital part of what we do and we have a vibrant and growing Youth Theatre that is supplemented by workshops on particular skills as well as two summer productions. We firmly believe that theatre helps grow the citizens and audiences of tomorrow.

Over the last five years we have seen a period of continued growth and development with audiences increasing by 150% over this period. Currently we present nearly 600 separate events a year attracting audiences of over 52,000.

As The Stage observed in their review of A Christmas Carol “Trinity …seems, at last, to be vibrant again.”
