Trinity Community Arts had been running 6 West Street for nearly 5 years, under the Council’s Community Asset Transfer initiative, with the aim to support the regeneration of Old Market. After a successful run of community cafe projects and due to the growth of this particular offer within the locality, it was felt that a cafe space was no longer a priority in terms of achieving their objectives in 2016.

SPACE is a lovely small white wall gallery and event space, with a large front window and is accessible for wheelchair users.

We are based at 6 West street, Old Market, BS2 0BH.
