Something for everyone at the summer festival

    Tonbridge Festival

    This year’s Tonbridge Festival, which begins on Friday, includes a mix of music, arts and family activities that organisers say will engage the whole community.

    A packed ten-day programme includes a daily art trail developed by a number of local schools who were invited to produce Roald Dahl-themed works for Tonbridge High Street venues.

    There will be a patriotic grand finale at the Castle with a proms-style performance on Sunday July 10 from the Tonbridge Philharmonic Choir and Orchestra.

    Liz Penn, Marketing Manager, said: “So far, the response has been pretty strong and we are expecting our weekend events to sell out, though we haven’t quite reached that yet.

    “We started the festival back in 2010 and people in Tonbridge do love events at the castle. They’ve always proved really popular as it just gives people the opportunity to do something different.”
