Family at Merrye Olde Market with Trinity Arts Centre brochure

It’s time for us all to come together again, to fill the auditorium with the sound of laughter, applause and excitement, to begin making new memories and get back to being entertained.

There is a buzz of excitement and activity at Trinity Arts Centre as doors are opened again and audiences are welcomed back. Staff have been busy behind the scenes and a new brochure of events for Autumn 2021 has been revealed, the first following their 16 month closure due to Covid-19 restrictions.

There is something for everybody in their reopening season, from live music and stand-up comedy to drama and musical theatre. Alongside the live shows, they also have a packed community hire programme offering regular weekly classes in cheerleading, dance, drama, singing and adult education.

As well as planning the programme of events the team have used the time during lockdown to give the historic building some tender loving care, including lots of improvements for customer safety and comfort.

Some of the improvements the venue now boasts include a new box office system, a front of house sound system, digital signage, bespoke bar with an upgraded EPOS system and digital presentation equipment for meetings.

For customer’s peace of mind, they are now a certified Covid Secure theatre and have taken all the necessary steps to keep patrons safe. The venue boasts an outstanding ventilation system which ensures customers are breathing the freshest air at all times.

West Lindsey Commercial Development Manager Cara Markham said; “We have used the downtime during lockdown to bring the Arts Centre up to date and offer our customers a venue that is well-equipped, modern and safe for everyone to use .We hope our customers enjoy the changes that the team have worked hard to deliver.”

The highlight and finale of the season will be the welcome return of pantomime to Trinity Arts, with a spectacular production of Aladdin, produced by Anton Benson Productions. There will be all the magic and sparkle you would expect, making this a family show you do not want to miss.

Craig Sanders, Centre Manager for Trinity Arts Centre, said; “Our opening season offers something for everyone, whether it’s stand-up comedy with the like of ITV Benidorm’s Crissy Rock, live music with the undeniably talented Snake Davis, or top family theatre performances such as the Little Mermaid or our brand new Christmas production of Aladdin. Whatever your interest, we are looking forward to welcoming audiences old and new through our doors, as well as showcasing all the fantastic developments we’ve been busy with at the theatre.”

Regular attendee Cllr Jessie Milne said; “It is lovely to see the variety of performances available at Trinity and it’s so easy to book now with the new booking system. Hopefully these successful opening shows will encourage people back to the Arts Centre, which will prove positive for the venue and the local community.

The staff at Trinity Arts Centre cannot wait to welcome you back this autumn!
