Bastards Review

on Thursday, 24 May 2018. Posted in Events

Review by Adele Matterface

‘In Morocco, as in all Muslim countries, Sex before marriage is against the law, single mothers are despised, illegitimate children are outcasts. But this is no ordinary single mother…’

Bastards is a sometimes shocking, often heart-warming documentary which was shown as part of the Trowbridge Arts Community Cinema programme. This season was curated by Lorena Pino with the central theme of Motherhood at various stages. In the spirit of this, Bastards, and the other documentaries shown as part of this season were directed and written by women.

Funding News

Sadly Town Hall Arts has not been successful in securing ongoing support from Arts Council England. This means that we need to find replacement core funding of a minimum of £35000 per year by the end of June 2018. If we're not successful in this we will need to close our doors at the end of July.

We are doing all we can to prevent this from being the case and are talking to lots of individuals and businesses that may want to invest in our work to ensure we can keep making a difference to the community and the regeneration of the County Town of Wiltshire.  


What you can do...

1. Please get in touch if you, your company or the company you work for would like to discuss becoming a core funder.
2. Write to the Wiltshire Times letters@wiltshiretimes.co.uk   and our MP Andrew Murrison ( andrew.murrison.mp@parliament.uk) about why you think Town Hall Arts is important for the town, the community and why it's important to you.
3. Support us through our Local Giving Page https://localgiving.org/charity/town-hall-arts/
4. ..and keep supporting us in all the wonderful ways that you do as visitors, ticket buyers, volunteers, artists and moral supporters.

Many thanks for your continued support.

Season 2. Women and Motherhood

Independent films directed by women from around the world.
From the Philippines to Morocco and crossing into Colombia.


After the success of our very first film season in Town Hall Arts during Autumn and Winter 2017, we continue celebrating the diverse communities in Trowbridge, Wiltshire and surrounding areas through film. This will be in Spring and early Summer 2018 with a second season of our Community Cinema programme curated by Lorena Pino. This time we are exploring the central topic of motherhood - as a cycle in different stages - with three triple F-Rated films. That means they are directed by women, written by women and portray women on screen in their own right

May - A Suffragettes Story Review

Review by Adele Matterface

‘We may not win today, or tomorrow, but someday – we will win’


 ‘May’ is a play which showcases an emotional tale of activism, disability and sexuality. Performed solely by actor Phoebe Kemp, it premiered to a full audience at the Trowbridge Town Hall. The complete script includes a total of ten characters, seven of which Kemp played live onstage. This was a challenge she met confidently and gracefully and the show was considered an all-around success by its audience.

Born in Syria Review

on Wednesday, 07 February 2018. Posted in Events

Review by Adele Matterface

‘At first, I thought the only problem was crossing the sea. Now we’re here… and I see that the problem is much bigger.’


Born in Syria (2016) is the award-winning documentary by director Hernán Zin. The film was screened in the Trowbridge Town Hall building on January 20th, two years after the Town Hall’s exhibition ‘From Syria with Love’, a showcase of paintings made by Syrian children depicting the harsh realities of their lives. The screening of Born in Syria was a great success, with every seat filled with both British and Syrian attendees of all ages.
