Even though it’s easy to travel to London from the Kent, theatregoers need not feel that they have to make the journey to London to catch a good play, comedy performance, dance show or musical theatre production. Theatres such as the Trinity in Tunbridge Wells, newly refurbished Marlow Theatre in Canterbury, The Assembly Hall in Royal Tunbridge Wells and Hazlitt Theatre in Maidstone all have a varied programme of high quality theatre entertainment. In the summer why not catch a top notch outdoor performance of Shakespeare at the Hever Festival Theatre or in the grounds of one the many surrounding National Trust properties in the area.
