A lot of the council finance for this venue has been recently pulled, so they are nearly totally self-financing now, hence the need now to charge in the car-park. The venue hosts a wide variety of shows and films and gets the occasional big name e.g Jack Dee, Jo Brand and Bob Golding (who does the one man Eric Morecambe show which is AWESOME .... and touring again in 2014) amongst up and coming names. The venue holds about 350 people and is a converted church and is located in the town centre. I suppose for comedians,if you can make 350 folk from hoity-toity Tunbridge Wells (I lived there for eleven years) laugh, then you must be funny! There is a small art gallery inside the building and a SUPER little cafe ...... a nice ambience and quiet.
