Tunbridge Wells Museum & Art Gallery is Changing

Tunbridge Wells Borough Council is investing in culture with a new Creative Learning Hub and new theatre, modernising its approach and creating a  joined up cultural offer to improve awareness and engagement across the borough.

This exciting new future is beginning to take shape and Tunbridge Wells has a surprising story to tell. Set in the beautiful landscape of the High Weald, the town’s special character has inspired artists and innovators, naturalists and political radicals for over 400 years. The project sets out to challenge preconceptions about the town and the people who live here, and tell a much more interesting and unexpected story of change and transformation. As part of this work we will be re-designing our look and feel and how we engage with visitors and residents - including this website.

For an example of how things will change web wise and other cultural activity you can enjoy, visit Assembly Hall Theatre
