Er...... that sounds awful. But this is the Tripadvisor review page for the Tunbridge Wells Forum music venue? And although it's a great idea we could probably make money out of, we don't have any parking officers.

I've performed here a few times now and it is excellent every time. The staff and technicians are extremely friendly and helpful, and the venue itself is brilliant.

If you have a chance to see a band here, just go! Also a great place for a birthday party, assuming you have friends in a band who'll play
