Find places you've never seen before in Tunbridge Wells as we give everyone a stage to shine. We have already signed up: -Our very own homegrown Modernised Punch and Judy show from local talent Josh Neville -Local rockband Motor Raider -TWells comedian Aimee Cooper We are going to create a buzz in the town with 3 street theatre stages which will be hosting free workshops and highlights of performances to help you choose and entertain you!
