Introduction It has been a jam packed summer of firsts, where we produced sell out site specific show Terror, and launched new fringe festival, ArtsBox! If you were lucky enough to enjoy a cold drink and cake in our beautiful garden this summer you may have also noticed our incredible gardening volunteers. The team have been tending the grounds, introducing new beds, and opening up previously unexplored areas of interest – and excitingly this August our gardens were entered into Britain in Bloom, a lovely follow up to our recent Muddy Stilettos Best Theatre Award 2019. We now welcome in our Autumn season of events! I would recommend attending the much loved biannual TW Puppetry Festival in October, and as we head into winter I hope you enjoy watching Trinity transform into an exciting Snow Palace with this year’s Christmas production, The Snow Queen.

Successes for the campaign already include grants from the National Lottery Heritage Fund and TWBC, as well as Trinity’s first appearance at Tom Kerridge’s Pub in the Park. To continue making these positive transformations possible, we will need your support to reach our ambitious fundraising target. If you are interested in supporting our capital transformation, there are opportunities to sponsor a clocktower step, or your favourite seat – but by attending our events, or enjoying our Kitchen & Bar, you are already supporting your local arts charity, and we are immensely grateful. Finally, I am thrilled to welcome Trinity’s new Artistic Director, Kezia Cole, who joins us in September. She is excited to be joining the team, and being part of ensuring that Trinity remains a vibrant community spirited venue.

This Autumn will see our heritage plans take a step forwards with our new General Manager, Becky Waight, leading a new team of heritage volunteers, and working with specialist

· Transform Trinity ·

Inspire. Create. Educate.

Transforming our community through the arts. Trinity has a history of resurrection and reinvention... As a church, it was rescued by local people from demolition and disrepair, and transformed into a theatre and arts centre in 1982. Years later, when its funding was withdrawn, it escaped bankruptcy and the threat of closure. Today, Trinity is a vibrant cultural hub and registered charity. Having reached its fourth decade of operation, it’s time for a new chapter in Trinity’s history.

· Current Projects · Trinity Encore

Speech Bubbles

Launched in January 2019, Trinity Encore is a choir open to anyone living with dementia, or other age related illnesses, and their companions and loved ones. Trinity Encore is a welcoming, informal and fun space for everyone to come together, and sing the songs they love.

Speech Bubbles is a programme for children in school years one and two (ages 5-7) with speech, language and communication needs – now entering its third year, with 13 schools, and 220 children taking part.

“It is the one activity my mum looks forward to and will happily attend. Each week she is more confident and socialises more!”

“Each child has a chance to be the author, director or actor, therefore each child has a voice... the children involved are now more willing to put their hands up in class and not afraid to speak out”

· Fundraising 2019 – 2021 · The Clocktower

Community Space

We are opening up our building to reveal Trinity’s hidden spaces. The aim is for the clocktower to become a heritage attraction in the town, with ascending floors dedicated to the history of Trinity, architect Decimus Burton, and finishing with a 360° viewing platform from one of the highest points in Tunbridge Wells. Our project will be part of the momentum to regenerate Tunbridge Wells town centre, enabling us to work with local people to establish a new heritage destination, attracting new audiences and volunteers. Our ambition is to deliver an innovative range of heritage activities and engagement for Tunbridge Wells as a heritage destination.

The building will have a new, distinct entrance, and a light and airy foyer space. We want to create a welcoming, inviting and attractive space that is accessible to all. With a newly landscaped garden, and improvements to signage, toilets, and facilities, we will greatly enhance the experience of a visit to Trinity for all our audiences and visitors. We will be able to offer more to community groups, and a wider range of events, activities, and creative programmes.

Conservation Over the past 10 years we have invested £500,000 into the fabric, infrastructure, and facilities of our venue, but more investment is needed. Our conservation project will focus on undertaking essential repairs to the roof, stonework, and Trinity’s rare and beautiful stained glass window. We want to ensure that the building remains open for future generations to enjoy.

NT Live: A Midsummer Night’s Dream Wednesday 6th November · 7pm · Recording

NT Live marks its 10th anniversary this year, and continues to broadcast world class theatre from stages across the UK to cinemas around the world – and to Trinity Theatre, of course. Working with the best British theatre companies and producers, their screenings have been seen by over 8 million people in 65 countries over the past decade. This autumn, director Nicholas Hytner builds on the success of his immersive staging of Julius Caesar with NT Live: A Midsummer Night’s Dream, starring Gwendoline Christie (of Game of Thrones fame), as well as Oliver Chris – who you can also catch in NT Live’s encore screening of One Man, Two Guvnors, starring James Corden (see p.12 for more details). For this production, the Bridge Theatre will become a forest – a dream world of flying fairies, contagious fogs and moonlight revels, surrounded by a roving audience following the action on foot. In Shakespeare’s beloved comedy, a feuding fairy King and Queen of the forest cross paths with four runaway lovers, and a troupe of actors trying to rehearse a play. As their dispute grows, the magical royal couple meddle with mortal lives leading to love triangles, mistaken identities, and transformations… with hilarious, but dark consequences.

The centrepiece of ROH Live’s autumn season shows off the breadth of The Royal Ballet’s heritage. From its classical origins in the works of Marius Petipa to the home-grown choreographers who put British ballet on to the world stage, this mixed programme highlights the versatility of the Company. Petipa’s Raymonda Act III is Russian classical ballet summarised in one act, full of sparkle and precise technique, while Ashton’s Enigma Variations is quintessentially British in every way – from its score by Elgar, and period designs by Julia Trevelyan Oman, to Ashton’s signature style, the essence of British ballet. Concerto completes the programme, MacMillan’s fusion of classical technique with a contemporary mind.

With family and friendships under strain and a guinea pig café struggling to keep afloat, Fleabag suddenly finds herself with nothing to lose.

This slapstick knockabout follows the charmingly hapless Francis Henshall, recently fired from his skiffle band, and now minder to small time East End hood Roscoe Crabb. But Roscoe is really his sister Rachel posing as her own dead brother, who’s been killed by her boyfriend Stanley Stubbers. Holed up at The Cricketers’ Arms, the permanently ravenous Francis spots the chance of an extra meal ticket and takes a second job with one Stanley Stubbers, who is hiding from the police and waiting to be reunited with Rachel. To prevent discovery, Francis must keep his two guvnors apart. Simple. Hailed as “the funniest show in town” by The Telegraph, Francis must muddle through escalating double dealings and mistaken identities in this fast paced comedy riot.

MUSIC ON SCREEN

Sexual intrigue, jealousy, wit, anger… and retribution! The new Royal Opera Season begins with Mozart’s engaging masterpiece, which follows Don Giovanni, the women he serially seduces, and the vengeance that finally catches up with him. The opera is renowned for its ever shifting portrayals of complex characters, fast moving action and mix of the comic and the heartfelt. A cast of international singers – both familiar and making Royal Opera debuts – under conductor Hartmut Haenchen, performs the glorious arias and ensembles of this opera favourite.

Royal Opera favourite Bryn Terfel heads the cast for this new production of Donizetti’s comedy of domestic drama across two generations. The witty story of a middle aged man whose supposed young wife runs rings around him – with her own ulterior romantic purpose in mind – has long delighted and surprised audiences, not least as presented with the sparkle of its music and the virtuoso skill of its performers. Damiano Michieletto’s exhilarating production shows how contemporary the characters still are and how immediate and touching the story remains.

Apollo 11 is a cinematic event fifty years in the making, and is definitely one for the ‘big’ screen. Crafted from a newly discovered trove of 65mm footage, and more than 11,000 hours of uncatalogued audio recordings, the film takes us straight to the heart of NASA’s most celebrated mission – the one that first put men on the moon, and made Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin household names. Immersed in the perspectives of the astronauts, the team in Mission Control, and the spectators on the ground, we vividly experience those momentous days and hours in 1969 when humankind took a giant leap into the future.

On 5th July 1984, Diego Maradona arrived in Naples for a world record fee and for seven years all hell broke loose. The world’s most celebrated football genius and the most dysfunctional city in Europe were a perfect match for each other. Maradona was blessed on the field but cursed off it. The charismatic Argentine, quickly led Naples to their first ever title. It was the stuff of dreams. But there was a price… Diego could do as he pleased whilst performing miracles on the pitch, but when the magic faded he became a prisoner of the city. From the Academy Award and BAFTA winning team behind Senna and Amy.

The Shrimps have only one thing on their mind: to qualify for the Gay Games in Croatia, where the hottest LGBTQ+ athletes compete. Enter their arch rivals, The Pool Punchers, an equally OTT lesbian team. It’s the start of a bumpy and joyful ride!

Quentin Tarantino’s tale of a TV Western actor and his stunt double, and how they collide with the Manson Family in the Hollywood of 1969, is a heady, engrossing collage of a film. Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt) make their way around an industry they hardly recognise anymore. The ninth film from the writer/director features a large ensemble cast and multiple storylines in a tribute to the final moments of Hollywood’s golden age.

When music fanatic Javed discovers the back catalogue of The Boss his world is turned upside down. Yearning to escape his rundown hometown and the rules of his traditional Pakistani household, Javed finds himself caught between two worlds and must discover if he too is Born to Run...

Pedro Almodovar’s latest film sees him reunited with both Antonio Banderas and Penelope Cruz, with Banderas winning best actor for the role at Cannes this year. It is considered his best film in years by some critics and is his most autobiographical film yet. It tells of a series of reencounters experienced by Salvador Mallo, an aging film director in physical decline. He reflects on the choices he’s made in his life as the past and present come crashing down around him.

· YOUTH WORKSHOPS · What an exciting season we just had! Not only did our NT Connections cast take our production of Variations to The Marlowe Studio in Canterbury, but we produced a few more short films, staged two casts of Disney’s Alice in Wonderland Jr and performed a spectacular production of Sweeney Todd School Edition with our brilliant youth cast, orchestra, and backstage youth theatre team. We also went to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe with the fantastic Pronoun and Ben Hur. We are really grateful for all of the support we had for this new venture, and its one that we hope to repeat next year. We also were proud to provide entertainment at Pub in the Park Tunbridge Wells, with our Trinity Youth Theatre singers performing a selection of songs from High School Musical and Les Misérables, and storytelling and dance sessions being run by our Youth & Learning team. Next season promises to bring even more excitement. The play version of JM Barrie’s Peter Pan will whisk us away to Neverland while our production of Elf Jr will be a perfect appetiser for Christmas ahead of the spectacle that is The Snow Queen. There are plenty more opportunities to get involved, with audition notices being regularly posted on our website at www.trinityyouththeatre.co.uk including our forthcoming productions of Disney’s High School Musical 2, NT Connections 2020, and our exciting summer shows. September also sees further expansion of our Speech Bubbles programme, now in its third year, with 13 schools and 220 children taking part in the intervention for those with speech, language, and communication needs. We are grateful for the continued support from Kent County Council, The Lawson Foundation, The Gatwick Foundation, Tunbridge Wells Round Table, and The Arts Society in enabling us to support more children. A final thank you to our ever growing audiences and participants for supporting us in continuing to expand the range and scale of youth activities offered by Trinity Theatre.

Trinity Youth Theatre presents J.M. Barrie’s original stage play of a modern fairytale about Wendy Darling, her two brothers, and their adventures with Peter Pan: a mischievous, flying boy who will not grow up. Together they fly from their nursery to the dreamlike Neverland inhabited by a gang of Lost Boys, fairies, mermaids, and the fierce princess Tiger Lily and her tribe of natives. Casting a dark shadow over the magical island is the sinister Captain Hook who, alongside his band of pirates, has sworn revenge on Peter Pan for cutting off his hand. The longer Wendy and her brothers spend in the Neverland and the more adventures they have, the more they realise they are forgetting their home. But before they can return, the pirates swoop in, taking them back to their ship as hostages…

Young Artist, Age 13

The Wild and Wonderful

Fiona Newman

Katie Fox

“I love art as it gives me boundless freedom to express myself. My inspiration comes from animals and vibrant colour. I love to experiment with different media to capture my ideas and depict my creativity and I particularly like working with acrylics. My first exhibition is a collection ranging from abstract pieces to portraits. I have loved creating each piece, and I hope you will enjoy my exhibition just as much.”

Katie Fox is quite small and fun! Her paintings are bursting with daydreams and wonder. She loves adventurous animals, especially tigers, alpacas and foxes, and all manor of flora and fauna weave their way into her magical worlds. She works in watercolour and coloured pencil. She has a BA in Illustration, and would love one day to do a children’s book.
