The Art of Prog

Steph Farrer

The Art of Prog is a new addition to this year’s Trinity: there will be artwork on display from Rodney Matthews plus some classic prog album covers, two acoustic music sessions from Oliver Wakeman, and an intimate Q&A with Matthews and Wakeman and festival attendees!. There will opportunities to purchase Matthews’ artwork, as well as the album cover prints.

The Art Of Prog will be open to festival attendees from 12pm until 7pm, apart from between 3:30pm and 5:30pm, at which point limited tickets will be required to attend either of the sessions from Wakeman. Tickets for The Art Of Prog are free of charge for festival ticket holders, and available to reserve via See Tickets.

A charity event at heart, Trinity 4’s main event will be raising money for Mind, Help Musicians UK and Scope. For The Art Of Prog, however, proceeds raised during these sessions will be going to a fourth charity, chosen personally by Wakeman himself. The Friends of Alderman Knight School is a charitable trust which supports the main school, Alderman Knight; a very successful and well-established special school for children aged 4 to 19 with moderate and additional learning difficulties, complex needs and Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD).
