Trestle is delighted to announce that award winning actress and comedienne Nina Conti is our new Patron. Nina will be coming to Trestle Arts Base for a Festival Gala Fundraising Evening on 23 May.
Over the past year, Trestle has been making masks for Nina to use in her shows and on this evening she will use all her Trestle masks and create a unique and intimate improvised performance at Trestle Arts Base.
Nina has won a British Comedy Award, stormed Live at the Apollo, Russell Howard’s Good News, Sunday Night at the Palladium, and made a BAFTA nominated film – all without even moving her lips. She began her career as an actress at the Royal Shakespeare Company, before the genius and anarchic theatre director Ken Campbell inspired her to become a ventriloquist. In 2008 she won the prestigious Barry Award at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival for her solo show Complete and Utter Conti. In 2010, Talk to the Hand had sell out seasons in Edinburgh, London, Melbourne, the Sydney Opera House and New York.
This evening is about raising funds to help improve Trestle’s beautiful building and ensure it continues to serve the local community for another 15 glorious years.
Tickets for Nina Conti’s Gala Fundraiser go on sale at 7pm on Saturday 6 May.
