Great company and so fascinating in how they work with the amazing expressive masks they make! Its interesting how you use the masks with the body language and expressions you have to use for making your character mask come alive.
Lovely environment with lots going on, cafe and facilities are brilliant
What a unique venue for my birthday party! Claire was such a good organiser and it was a perfect evening thank you so much
Saw several performances in the late 80s/90s... one time in Edinburgh I was so moved by the piece the emotions stayed with me for days. This is what theatre should do, stir the emotions of the audience to do good! Just a wonderful experience watching supremely talented performers More...

Great venue run by enthusiastic supporters, good to see the arts flourishing in places like this. Should be more!
Attend the Meet Up Life Drawing at the centre and there's always something going on! Lovely place to be, remember Trestle Theatre touring to Lancaster University when I was there in the 80's!
Thank you so much for the amazing Mask workshop last week!
A great time was had by all and we can't wait to come back soon!
Don't forget, we Homeschoolers need you! Thanks. Gerry.x More...
Attended on 28.01.2017 for the first time and can say that will definitelly go again to experience some more of the extremely positive atmosphere during live music gigs.
Trestle is a great space for arts activities in idyllic surroundings. There's plenty of parking, great coffee and helpful staff.
I dream of being booked to play my music there before I die.
Great performance and arts venue and so much much Mary's soup is to die for. Well worth the trip even for just a coffee
We attended an acting class here which was nice. There is a cafe with plenty of seating and food options, however, there aren't really any healthy choices.
Great venue in an old church building. Great at local events.
Perfect place for Art and music. Very friendly atmosphere and helpful
Fantastic as always.
Awesome venue...bring on the music, Halloween Spectacular
As a trustee, I would say a wonderful afternoon today, wouldn't I! But it was. The tour of the building was a storytelling pleasure of the first order. Congratulations.

Two days jam packed with play, learning and creativity. Thanks Trestle. A very worthwhile journey.
Brilliant place, awesome fab live music, St. Albans is so talented!
It's always a great night of music and entertainment for charity. It's definitely worth going. Always a fantastic Saturday night.
