What's On in Tunbridge Wells

You’ll never be bored in Tunbridge Wells!

You will be amazed at whats on in Tunbridge Wells and there is always lots and lots going on.

Music, theatre, dance, comedy, art...the area has more than its fair share of fun, colourful and entertaining events taking place throughout the year in Royal Tunbridge Wells, Cranbrook and the Wealden Villages.

Highfalutin Culture and Low Down Fun!

We have 3 major theatres in the area providing mainstream and off-piste entertainment to make you laugh, gasp and cry.

The Forum is a nationally acclaimed music venue with excellent up and coming talent gigging on The Common every week.

There are several festivals celebrating local food, music and art enjoyed in our award winning parks (such as the amazing Dunorlan Park), plazas not to mention the world-famous Pantiles.

Gardeners’ Paradise

There are also a number of gardening highlights in the calendar showcasing the plentiful flora and landscapes across the borough. 

We have bluebells, daffodils, tulips, and roses in the most gorgeous of gardens, you must take some time to visit at least one of these famous attractions.

When it comes to music events, you will be amazed at whats on in Tunbridge Wells! There any many exciting live music concerts indoors and out in enviable country estate surroundings.

We’ve welcomed Jessie J, Paloma Faith, Elton John, Prince and Debbie Harry to name a few!

Garden art and sculpture shows feature often in the area. With eight bank holidays a year and a stunning backdrop of historical architecture, rural rolling hills and the Seven Wonders of The Weald, there is much scope for amusement as well as admiration.

Take the annual pram race at Speldhurst for instance, think Wacky Races and you won’t be far off!

Just Join the Fun!

As such, the Tunbridge Wells attractions join in on the fun and have year long programmes of events to tempt you out to play.

Any minute now you could be vilified by Vikings or regaled by the Regency in an historical re-enactment or other events for children during the school holidays.

Fancy plundering our larders? We’re not called the Garden of England for nothing!

We have weekly farmers’ markets and plenty of opportunities for taste testing local food like cakes, pies, wine and beer, not to mention the 400 year old Chalybeate Spring.

You can also visit one of the many places to eat and drink including our variety of award-winning restaurants, cafes, pubs and bars to sample some of our foodie delights!

If a spot of retail therapy is an essential to your agenda, then why not combine food with shopping, the good news is that there are plenty of car parks and free parking around so you don't have to worry about where you are going to park. 

This wide range of events and things to do in such a compact area make it well worthwhile taking a short break in quality assured accommodation, fortunately there is a wide range of hotels, bed and breakfasts and camping and caravan sites in Tunbridge Wells to choose from.
