ArtsBox Festival, Trinity Theatre, Sat 10 – Sat 17 Aug

Sorry, Edinburgh, who? Moooove aside oh famous Fringe – a new Arts Festival is coming to town. Our Kent town of Tunbridge Wells to be precise. And while it’s on a much smaller ’boutique’ scale its got all the hallmarks of an exciting new cultural and community event – which are the things we like most here on Muddy.

Launching for the first time this summer, in August, ArtsBox Festival 2019, will celebrate local talent and put emerging artists firmly in the spotlight. Founded by Jocelyn Cheek, in collaboration with Trinity Theatre, it will be Tunbridge Well’s first fringe festival featuring art, comedy, music, and theatre. With events and workshops on everything from travel talks by Award-winning adventurers to Mindfulness Life Drawing, free stuff for the kids and some great comedy acts. Keep updated here:
