How's the Trowbridge Town Hall project going?

August 29, 2013 10:26 PM

Here's an update from the Town Hall Friends:


Trowbridge Arts and CEW at the Town Hall

The Town Hall is now established as the base of Trowbridge Arts and will be a key venue in the forthcoming Trowbridge Arts Festival this autumn. Look out for your copy of the brochure. Tickets will be available soon through Salisbury playhouse.

Tracy Sullivan and her team from Trowbridge Arts share their office with another local arts organisation - Creative Ecology Wiltshire (CEW). "CEW connects dance and theatre artists and practitioners and their creative products to the marketplace". http://danceandtheatrewiltshire.net/creative-ecology-wiltshire

Music Matters Summer School

The summer has been a busy time at the Town Hall, with a two week residency by Music Matters - "a music project for 13-19 year olds in Wiltshire, giving young people the chance to experience everything to do with writing, playing and recording music". (http://www.sparksite.co.uk/activities/musicmatters_summer_tour_2013_trowbridge)

A team of professional musicians and teachers worked with young people over two separate weeks at the Town Hall helping them to develop their own styles of writing, playing and singing. With its many and varied spaces, the Town Hall really came into its own as an ad hoc arts school.

Trowbridge Town Hall Friends Tours - 31st August and 14th September

The Town Hall Friends will be opening the Town Hall for guided tours on two forthcoming Saturdays. 31st August coincides with the Trowbridge Food Festival and 14th September is Heritage Open Day.

Town Hall archivist, Rosemary Hawkes, has been busy researching the history of the Town Hall, so this will be a great opportunity to discover some new aspects of Trowbridge past.
