Go on the right night with a bunch of friends and its a fab venue ! Check out the gig list before you go some of the bands/evenings might not be to your taste. 80's nights are a blast but get booked up quickly ….

Great venue and great bands... a must for all live music fans. There are other places to go in TW but they can be a bit hit and miss... The Forum has the best bands and sound, all at affordable prices.

Great bands. Great atmosphere. Great people. Great drinks. What more do you need? Just go if you’ve never been and you’ll go again.

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.

There is street parking in Linden Park Road on the other side of The Pantiles or the Union House Car Park approximately 200 metres south of the venue on the A26.
