News – Covid-19 and Trinity
· Trinity Statement ·
We take the health and wellbeing of our visitors, audience members, volunteers and staff seriously. Following the latest scientific advice given by the government yesterday we regret to inform you that we will close from today, 17th March 2020, for a minimum of three weeks.
The suspension of our Spring programme will impact us in many ways, not least financially. We ask where possible and if you can, to please consider converting your tickets to either donations or spendable credit on your Trinity account. We will of course be offering refunds for those that request them, emails to all ticket holders will be sent in line with our standard policy; we ask that you bear with us while we action these through our ticketing system over the next 72 hours. We will be in contact with ALL ticket holders, so we ask that you please refrain from contacting our box office during this time.
We are in unprecedented times and our team will still be operating behind the scenes to prepare us for re-opening. We are currently working on a plan to move some of our youth & senior engagement activity online, open to all, in order to keep the outreach work we deliver going.
We are speaking with our creative facilitators and in house teams to establish how we can do this effectively, we want this to be a community action, that sees as many residents engaged as possible.
We stand with our creative partners and other local venues including the Assembly Hall and EM Forster, who like us are closing from today and will be balancing the implications that Covid-19 brings to our community and small knit staff teams.
Please start to follow us on our social channels and sign-up to our newsletter for planned activities…we are moving the fun online.
We thank you for your ongoing financial support and community loyalty, Team Trinity
