Trigger

We are — Creators. Producers. Writers. Planners. Coordinators. Communicators. Activists and innovators.

Trigger are shapeshifting creatives

We dream-up, create and produce bold and brave live events. We interrupt daily life, reimagine and revive public spaces, and put audiences and togetherness at the heart of everything we do.  

Our work is accessible, inclusive and boundary pushing. It’s always memorable, often large-scale and outdoors. We create epic, imaginative spaces, fly giant dragons and grow magical pop-up gardens.   

Trigger’s vision is brought to life by diverse teams of cross-disciplinary artists, academics and creatives and aims to shine a spotlight on the creativity of local communities.  

We use our platform to showcase new, emerging, inspiring talent. When we are handed the microphone, we use it to highlight issues that are important to us all, even if they are difficult to navigate.  

We're based in an old converted post office, located in a Somerset AONB valley in the beautiful Mendip Hills.

Trigger is for everyone, and everyone is invited.
