Royal Tunbridge Wells is a town that was built on leisure and recreation. Events have always played a part in our local economy with incoming visitors boosting our retail, food and beverage and hotel sectors.

  • Businesses asked the BID to support events and to improve and enhance them to ensure their long term sustainability.
  • The BID will be providing grant funding every year to amenity groups and event organisers to ensure that events are adequately funded and promoted.
  • We are developing a cultural strategy for the town, identifying events that fit with the character and essence of our lovely, historic spa town.
  • We will be helping to organise events to showcase the very best food and drink experiences.
