Art at Trinity Hall

Arts Festival

Trinity Hall’s first Arts Festival celebrates creativity and the arts through a series of events, exhibitions, performances, screenings, and opportunities for artistic practice and production. The Festival is an opportunity for the arts to thrive in College and to showcase our diverse artistic talent.

The festival runs throughout the 2022/23 academic year.

Upcoming Events

Cornelia Parker works on display in the JCR

As part of the Trinity Hall Arts Festival, Cristea Roberts Gallery has kindly lent five works by Honorary Fellow Cornelia Parker CBE RA, for display in the JCR.

The works were selected by JCR President Kate Valentine with Picture Steward Prof. Alexander Marr.

They will be displayed until the end of Easter Term, and it is hoped that junior members and others in the College community will enjoy them.

More information about Cornelia and the works on display.

We are very grateful to Cristea Roberts Gallery and Cornelia Parker for generously facilitating the loan.

The artist’s work has long been on display in the College with her tapestry Thirty Pieces of Silver (Minus One) hanging in the Dining Hall. Earlier this year she had a career retrospective at Tate Britain.

Portraits in Trinity Hall

An informal guide to portraits in Trinity Hall

Whether the architecture explains it or not, each Cambridge college has a curious kind of personality. ‘Hall men and women’ know – though they rarely make that knowledge explicit – that ‘their college’ is the best and ‘the nicest’. It is ‘cosy’, friendly, unpretentious and, in some mysterious way, welcoming.

I welcome the reader to this guided tour of those who lived and worked here before our time and hope that both Trinity Hall members and visitors will find it entertaining to get to know the portraits and the persons whose faces stare at them from the walls.
