About us

Trestle is a mask and physical theatre company: our mission is to inspire creativity through participation and dialogue and we do this by approaching opportunities with an open mind, playful approach and our ever-surprising and engaging masks.

Trestle has been making innovative physical theatre since 1981 and in recent years has focused its work on school workshops, performances and teacher training; we work in partnership with schools, FE colleges, PRUs and Universities to deliver the skills and resources needed to encourage high quality learning through the arts.

  • Run Trestle Arts Base as a welcoming venue for professional artists and creative space for local communities
  • Deliver professional development for teachers and arts practitioners, including MA, PGCE and CPD training.
