2024 Festival Dates: 6 & 7 July


Catch your breath and enjoy a free, freshly made brew in this heart-warming show by Trigger. Have a well-deserved TEABREAK and as you stir your cup, gently glide through an audio journey of tea and how it’s found itself into our tea pots.


Tea leaves have journeyed across continents and centuries to take their place as the great comforter of our time. With tea served from Trigger’s beautifully hand painted tuk tuk, this gentle performance brings an uplifting moment of pause. Uniting people across the world and throughout our lives, inviting us to rest awhile, appreciate all that we have, honour moments that have passed and ready ourselves for what is to come.


Performance times to be announced. 




Trigger dream-up, create and produce bold and brave live events. 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. Trigger is for everyone, and everyone is invited.
