Trestle Theatre Company
Trestle is a mask and physical theatre company: our mission is to inspire creativity through participation and dialogue and we do this by approaching opportunities with an open mind, playful approach and our ever-surprising and engaging masks.
Trestle has been making innovative physical theatre since 1981 and in recent years has focused its work on school workshops, performances and teacher training; we work in partnership with schools, FE colleges, PRUs and Universities to deliver the skills and resources needed to encourage high quality learning through the arts.
Trestle Arts Base is a 100-year-old chapel, beautifully converted into a unique performing arts centre run by Trestle Theatre Company. It houses an 84 (end on) to 120 (3 sides) seat flexible theatre space, rehearsal studio, cafe, offices and a meeting/function room. At Trestle Arts Base, there are high-quality shows in the theatre, regular drama, arts and exercise classes, well as one off projects and events. Everyone is welcome in our Gallery Café, which hosts a variety of exhibitions by vibrant new artists. The spaces at Trestle Arts Base are all available to hire for celebrations, meetings and performances.
