Trinity Live is a charity rock event, with all proceeds going to three cancer charities (Cancer Research UK, Teenage Cancer Trust and Macmillan). It all started back in 2014 when three bands were set to stage a triple-header concert, but with only weeks to go, one member was diagnosed with breast cancer, which obviously put the whole gig in doubt. However, as the gig had already sold most of the tickets, the bands were loathe to let it go, so three members stepped up and decided to run it as a charity event – it was a great success with just over £9k being donated to the charities.
As the first event had been such a success, Trinity II was hatched and took place on 27th May 2017, again in Leamington Assembly. With the great and the good in attendance, some fabulous auction and raffle items, and support again from Prog Magazine and Jerry Ewing, who was a star as our auctioneer, Trinity II was another fabulous day of music and fun, and raising money for three good causes to boot.
Now into its third event, Trinity Live brings together musicians and fans to raise money for these three important charities. The event is due to take place on 12th May 2018 in Islington Assembly Hall, with a confirmed headline act of the Steve Rothery Band (from Marillion); there will be six acts in total during the day, which runs from 1pm until 11pm. There will also be the usual raffle and auction, with some incredible items on offer.
“I’m really looking forward to our concert supporting the Trinity Prog charity event at the Islington Assembly hall, it’s a great venue and it should be a fantastic day.”Steve Rothery
“This is a terrific evening for a very good cause. Not only will it hopefully raise a huge amount for the three cancer charities, but it’s a spectacular bill as well, from top to bottom. There isn’t one band I’m not really looking forward to seeing and I’m already hard at work curating my DJ set for the aftershow. Prog is proud to support Trinity 2, and I hope to see as many of you down there as possible.”Jerry Ewing
