Notes for Notes Appeal

Notes for Notes appeal aims to raise £20,000 towards a £500,000 Conservation Project to repair the much-loved Trinity Centre

For every every £5 raised for the Notes for Notes appeal, Trinity will exchange one musical note.

Once we reach our target we will launch ‘the Trinity Anthem’ – a unique piece of music, created by Adrian Utley & John Parish, to celebrate the diverse musical heritage of the centre and city of Bristol.

Each year The Trinity Centre is used by over 60,000 people, providing over 3000 hours of free and subsidised space for community activities.

We hope that people who hold Trinity close to their hearts will support the Conservation Project and help us raise vital funds to help secure the centre’s future.

To donate, text ROOF31 £5 to 70070 or visit our Just Giving page.


Groundswell Rising Film Screening

Come and see this moving film on fracking and meet the executive producer..
Mark Lichty from Pennsylvania in the USA will be in Bristol for a screening of Groundswell Rising, a documentary about fracking in America and the social movement which has emerged from affected communities. It is informative, daunting, inspiring and hopeful all at once. Mark is the film’s executive producer and will be in England on a nine day tour.

Mark has long been involved in issues of social justice and change through organizations such as Common Cause, Project for Nuclear Awareness and others. He is an attorney and a former CEO of Bustin Industrial Products. He used to believe gas was a solution to future energy needs and spent tens of thousands of dollars converting his plant to gas, and had no issues with fracking at that time. When he subsequently became involved with the research for the Groundswell Rising film, he changed his position completely. He now believes fracking is the major issue of our times and, due to the health and environmental consequences, is a moral issue as well.

This is a great opportunity to come and find out more about fracking and hear first hand from someone who has lived side by side with the industry and has documented people taking charge of defending their communities against its inherent dangers. There will also be a chance to find out about the situation in the UK as fracking licences have been issued in many areas including in North Somerset, quite close to Bristol.
