Crescent Rd, Tunbridge Wells TN1 2LU

Based in the heart of Tunbridge Wells, the Assembly Hall Theatre first opened its doors to theatre goers in 1939. Designed by architect Percy Thomas as part of the Civic Centre complex, it was formally opened by the Marchioness Camden on Empire Day as we celebrated the 50th anniversary of the granting of the town’s charter in 1889.

Today, we’re delighted to host a wonderful variety of theatre, music, comedy and family events as well as an annual pantomime. We’re also the proud home of the Tunbridge Wells Operatic and Dramatic Society, Symphony Orchestra and Choral Society.

Continuing the town’s original desire that the Assembly Hall building would be more than just a theatre, we’re determined to engage with the wider community, including through working with schools, young people and charities, and developing new audiences. 

Nurturing and developing artistic talent within our borough is of the utmost importance, as is ensuring we deliver maximum benefit to residents, local businesses and visitors.
