You can expect a huge amount of culture on the scene this month, as The Tunbridge Wells Festival hits the town on Saturday August 26 and Sunday August 27.
It’s due to be run at the top of town and is hoped to bring a much needed boost to the local economy. Organised by TW businessman Stephen Mason, the event has bought together many of the town’s leading figures and sponsors. Entertainment looks set to include local celebrities, performances at Trinity and the Assembly Halls, street performers, opera singers, buskers and magicians. Look out for the Marching Band and Martial Arts displays. Numerous shops, cafes and businesses are planning to run competitions and special promotions on these days to coincide with the celebrations and 20 performance cars will be on display so the area is set to become a vibrant hub of talent and entertainment.
The festival is a non profit event and all proceeds after costs will be donated to local charities such as Hospice in the Weald, Headway, Pepenbury, Chips and Stars Foundation for Celebral Palsy.
