The concerts will take place for the next four Thursdays
The Assembly Hall Theatre and The Forum have announced a collaboration to bring live music to the Tunbridge Wells ice rink in Calverley Grounds, this Christmas season.
The live music nights will feature a collection of musical talent from the South East bringing a festive atmosphere to the ice rink. The bands will perform on four Thursday nights in November and December playing rock, indie and folk.
John Jackson-Almond, theatre director at the Assembly Hall said: “The Assembly Hall Theatre and Tunbridge Wells Borough Council are really proud to be entering into our first major collaboration with The Forum at the Christmas Ice Rink. We hope this partnership will grow and give many more local and upcoming bands more and varied opportunities in our Borough and further afield.”
Starting on Thursday November 24, three acts will take to the stage for each of the next four Thursdays from 7-9pm. The final Thursday event will be on December 15.
Performers will include Mike Wilton of the Standard Lamps, star of BBC Radio Kent Paul Cheese, and acclaimed brother/sister duo The Breretons.
The Forum owner Jason Dormon said: “Since our recent conversion to a social enterprise earlier this year, the Forum has begun branching out to new venues such as programming weekend nights at the Sussex Arms. So we really pleased to add this Thursday night residency at the ice rink as another string to Tunbridge Wells’ ever increasing live music offering.”
Entrance to the music nights is free. If you would like to skate tickets can be purchased from www.tunbridgewellsatchristmas.com
