Theatres in Tunbridge Wells

Tunbridge Wells is rich in theatrical offerings with no less than 3 theatres in the borough.

The biggest is the Assembly Hall Theatre, housed in the town centre’s civic complex of Art Deco buildings, and in 2014 celebrated its 75th anniversary.

As part of it’s Diamond celebrations, the interior was given a make-over bringing a new zing to the theatre's atmosphere.

Top billings have included Marti Pellow, Jimmy Carr, Sir Ranulph Fiennes, Priscilla Queen of the Desert Musical from the West End, Dawn French, the Russian State Ballet & Opera, and back in the 60s no less than The Rolling Stones and The Who!

There are 2 bars with a selection of soft drinks and snacks available which you can take in to the shows.

For pre-theatre meals, nearby restaurants do special offers if visiting the theatre the same evening.

The Trinity Theatre & Arts Centre is home to an alternative and diverse selection of drama, other performing arts and music as well as cinematic productions. 

The Comedy Café is a monthly event at Trinity showcasing the best up-and-coming comedians in the land and some famous bods too, like Ross Noble and Stephen K Amos.

There is a small gallery as well which hosts a rolling exhibition of creative artwork.

Situated in the town centre of Royal Tunbridge Wells, Trinity is in a wonderful Decimus Burton listed church, the Holy Trinity, with a cool bar and café on site too.

90,000 people can't be wrong - book your next night out now!

Both theatres are surrounded by restaurants who understand the need for quick and early pre-theatre dinners.

Equally a number of comfortable bars are on hand to meet friends or family before a show.

Only a 5 minute walk from the railway station, both are easily accessible by train, just under an hour from London on the Hastings Line.  Car Parks are next door to each too.

The Forum is a must-visit venue for music lovers looking to enjoy a night out. Recognised as one of the UKs Best Independent Small Venues, The Tunbridge Wells Forum has played host to countless of bands over the years.
